Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs defender Sibusiso Khumalo is set to feature against Cape Town City in an Absa Premiership encounter after making his return from injury.

Amakhosi aim to get back to winning ways when they host Eric Tinkler's charges, who have enjoyed a four-match unbeaten streak in the league.

Chiefs' mentor, Steve Komphela revealed that his side are expecting the return of Khumalo after he sustained a knock in the loss against Mamelodi Sundowns, in addition to revealing that they will be without the services of William Twala and Enocent Mkhabela.

"Khumalo is back and will play some role in tonight’s match," he told the club's official website.

"We are happy he recovered in time for this match to give us more options in our selection.

"William Twala is still out with an ankle injury. He is involved in light training at the moment and shows good signs of returning soon.

"Despite the injuries, however, we have prepared well for this game.

"We have identified the areas of concern and are working around the clock to fix our goal scoring ratio to chances that we have been creating.

"We planned to have Enocent play a role in the game, but the doctors advised us yesterday that he had some stomach discomfort. Subsequently he won't play a part in this one.

"City are a threat to any team at present ,but we have it all worked out to counter their threats," he concluded.

The two side's face-off at the FNB Stadium on Tuesday, November 29.

Kick off is at 19:30.
