Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs captain Siphiwe Tshabalala could miss the final league game of the season due to a knee injury.

Amakhosi host top eight-chasing Chippa United on Saturday afternoon in their last match of the 2015/ 2016 campaign.

But Chiefs coach Steve Komphela may be without Tshabalala, as well as right-back Kgotso Moleko, although neither player is confirmed as being sidelined as yet.

"Shabba is undergoing treatment to his knee," Komphela told the club's official website.

"We hope he will recover on time to face Chippa on Saturday.

"Moleko did not take part in full training today [Tuesday]. It is a precaution for now. However, the medical team will assess his condition and give us guidance leading up to Saturday."
