Cape Town - Kaizer
Chiefs have been boosted by the return of Itumeleng Khune after the goalkeeper resumed full training on Monday.
The 29-year-old had been nursing a back injury and was doubtful for
the team's clash with Bloemfontein Celtic in Wednesday's Absa Premiership
It was feared that the Glamour Boys would not have had a back-up option either, with Brilliant Khuzwayo, with Luthando Sixhaso and Brylon Petersen still
recovering from surgery.
However, Khune is now back in full training and will likely start
against Siwelele. More good news for Amakhosi is that William Twala has
returned to training following an ankle injury.
Meanwhile, Enocent Mkhabela and Erick Mathoho are still injured and
won't be available to face Celtic. Sibusiso Khumalo is suspended and
will serve the second game of his two-match ban.
As such, coach Steve Komphela has acknowledged the injury problems,
but refused to use it as an excuse ahead of the outing in Johannesburg.
He told Kick Off: "Yoh, the list is huge, seriously. I don't
want to bring that as an excuse, but when we went to Chippa we had 11
(injuries). But, listen, no complaint. (I will) be professional (and) go
on with the business."
Wednesday's action gets under way from 19:30 at the FNB Stadium.
