Kaizer Chiefs are reporting that Ivan Bukenya, Morgan Gould and Siphiwe Tshabalala will all be sidelined.

According to the club's official website, Chiefs’ medical team has reported that towering midfielder/defender Ivan Bukenya has injured his shoulder. The Ugandan was seen struggling along in the second half during the ill-fated loss to Black Leopards last Saturday.

Bukenya will have his arm in a sling for this week before undergoing further testing.

Defender Morgan Gould has been laid low with a muscle strain but Chiefs are confident that he will be fit for the upcoming trip to Morocco.

Amakhosi face Raja Casablanca in the second leg of the CAF Champions League’s first round with a one goal deficit.

Midfield kingpin Siphiwe Tshabalala has undergone a tooth extraction and he will also be out for the rest of the week.

The Glamour Boys continue to train this week without Itumeleng Khune, Brilliant Khuzwayo, Mandla Masango and Eric Mathoho are all on national team duty with Bafana Bafana, preparing to face Nigeria on Sunday.

Chiefs match against Raja Casablanca will be played next Sunday, April 5.

The match will kick-off at 21:00 (SA time).
