Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs marksman, Bernard Parker, will be available for selection this coming weekend after he missed the 1-1 draw with Moroka Swallows on Wednesday night.

According to the soccerladuma website, the striker was rested for the clash with the Dube Birds after picking up a foot injury in training, though his injury was never thought to be serious.

It has now been confirmed that the 28-year-old will be ready to face Platinum Stars in the Telkom Knockout this weekend as the Amakhosi look to knock out the holders.

Head coach, Stuart Baxter, told Chiefs’ official website, “Bernard Parker, who missed the last two matches due to injury, will be back on Sunday. He was actually ready to play tonight (v Swallows), but I didn’t want to rush him.”

The Glamour Boys’ 15-game winning streak was brought to an end yesterday as they were held by Swallows, although they will now be gunning for Mamelodi Sundowns’ record of going 19 games unbeaten.
