Kaizer Chiefs stalwart Willard Katsande will tonight make his 200th appearance for the club as the Amakhosi take on Cape Town City in the Absa Premiership.

Katsande, 31, made his debut for the club in 2011 having joined the Glamour Boys from Ajax Cape Town.

He quickly established himself as a first team regular, claiming the club's Player of the Season accolade in both 2014 & 2016.

"I never expected to play that many games for Kaizer Chiefs," Katsande is quoted as saying on the club's official website.

On his first goal at the club, which came in a 1-0 win over Soweto rivals Orlando Pirates three years ago, the Zimbabwe international had the following to say:

"That was an amazing experience. I will never forget that goal," he concluded.

In total, Katsande has started 191 games for the club across all competitions, coming on as a substitute on 8 occasions. Moreover, he has scored 14 goals for the Naturena-based outfit.
