Siphiwe to miss PSL restart

Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Siphiwe Tshabalala will definitely miss the match against Jomo Cosmos on Wednesday due to an injury he sustained in training.

"Shabba" joins Reneilwe Letsholonyane on the sidelines following confirmation the latter will be out for the rest of the season with a knee injury.

Tshabalala is currently on crutches after he was on the receiving end of a mistimed tackle during a training session at Naturena on Saturday and will not travel with the team to Port Elizabeth to take on Cosmos.

However, Chiefs head coach Vladimir Vermezovic told Football365.co.za he is not overly concerned at the latest injury setback.

"In Shabba's place we have Josta Dladla, Bernard Parker and also George Lebese, so we have a lot of players who can come in and fill in the void," Vermezovic said.

"Of course players like "Shabba" and "Yeye" (Letsholonyane) are very important to the team, but you know if they can't play what are we going to do? We can't kill ourselves because of that. I have said before that Kaizer Chiefs is not a one player team," Vermezovic added.

Meanwhile, Tshabalala admitted he is unsure when he would return to action, but estimated he may be available for Chiefs' match against Moroka Swallows on February 18.

"I'm not sure when I will be back, but I don't think it will be long before I make a return," the Bafana Bafana winger said.
