Amakhosi will play against Maritzburg United in their last game of 2019 on December 22, but will resume training the following day.

“We don’t have a break. We are playing on 22 December, will come back on 23. Then if we feel everything is right will take a break on 24 December. Then we will continue training, there is no time for us to rest of the holiday,” said Middendorp.

Middendorp’s Chiefs lead the Absa Premiership standings by 10 points after 12 games and are expected to pick up a few more points before the end of the year.
