Amakhosi's 1-0 win over Ajax on Sunday was their 15th
straight victory in all competitions, including eight on the trot in the
current league campaign. This run has seen Stuart Baxter's side race out to a
10-point lead at the top of the Premiership standings with just eight matches
This has been achieved for a large part without the services
of captain and star goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune, who has been sidelined since
August with an ankle injury, and he is not expected to return until much later
in the year. Striker Katlego Mphela also remains a long-term absentee, with the
29-year-old out of action due to a foot injury.
Bernard Parker (ankle) and Kingston Nkhatha (flu) missed the
weekend's trip to Cape Town and will be assessed before Wednesday's game.
In stark contrast to Chiefs' winning run, Swallows are
enduring a tumultuous period, with a poor run of results seeing head coach Zeca
Marques step down from his position on Monday, with Fani Madida taking
temporary charge of the Dube Birds.
Swallows haven't won a match since late August, and will
have their work cut out for them as they look to end that unwanted streak.
The Dobsonville outfit have not been helped by a number of
injuries, including their captain Lefa Tsutsulupa. The midfielder is back in
training and has an outside shot of playing on the weekend, but looks set to
miss out against Chiefs.
Tshwarelo Bereng (ankle), Boris Savic (knee) and Vladimir
Mandic (knee) are also sidelined for the encounter.
