Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs will be looking to continue their incredible winning run when they welcome Moroka Swallows to the FNB Stadium.

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 played.

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.
