Cape Town - Kgotso Moleko has joined Gustavo Paez and a host of other Kaizer Chiefs players currently sidelined through injury.

This news was confirmed in an injury update on the Amakhosi website on Friday, ahead of their upcoming league clash away to Mamelodi Sundowns next Tuesday evening.

Zimbabwean defender Teenage Hadebe, yet to play for the club, has returned to light training, but another central defender, Lorenzo Gordinho, is still three weeks away from a return as he recovers from broken ribs.

Leading goal-scorer Paez, meanwhile, looks likely to miss at least another month of action, if not more, while there is similarly bad news on Moleko, who has been a regular in the absence of another injury victim, Ramahlwe Mphahlele.

"The Venezuelan striker will be in a protective boot for another three weeks before resuming his rehabilitation to full fitness,"  read a statement on the Amakhosi website.

"Full-back Kgotso Moleko suffered a knee ligament in the Sparta Macufe Cup last weekend. Moleko will be in a brace and will be out for six to eight weeks."

Left-back Tsepo Masilela and striker Emmanuel Letlotlo are also out injured for Steve Komphela's team.

The Glamour Boys face the Brazilians at the Loftus Versveld Stadium with the action getting underway at 19:30.
