Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Lebohang 'Cheeseboy' Mokoena looks likely is to make his first appearance of the season when Downs face Free State Stars on Saturday.

Mokoena, who has been faced with a whole host of injuries over the years, had to have shoulder surgery during pre-season and is yet to make an appearance for the Brazilians this campaign.

According to Kickoff.com website, Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has confirmed that the 28-year-old will make his return at Lucas Moripe Stadium this weekend.

"Cheese is ready but has not played a game," says Mosimane.

"Imagine if I put him against AmaZulu he was gonna cramp and I am happy with the decision not to give him a run (against Usuthu).

"He will get a run against Free State Stars... he will get a run, he is okay."
