Cape Town - John Arwuah, Larry Horaeb, Ayanda Dlamini and Marc van Heerden will all miss basement boys AmaZulu's Premiership clash against top-of-the-table Kaizer Chiefs in Durban on Wednesday.

However, the one positive is the return of Philani Shange, who was a doubtful starter last week before the fixtures were postponed.

The league resumes after Senzo Meyiwa's tragic death on October 26.

The last thing winless AmaZulu needed was to take on a rampant Amakhosi team.

But a win will be their biggest achievement of the season and caretaker coach Wilfred Mugeyi is aware of that.

"Every game is a new one and we don't rely on past stats," he said. "We have analysed our opponents. I just hope the boys will stick to the game plan."

"If we stick to our philosophy and stick to what we believe in, I think we have an opportunity to get all three points."

Chiefs, who have won eight and drawn the other of their nine games so far, remain without long-term absentees Itumeleng Khune and Katlego Mphela.

Stuart Baxter's side are eight points clear of Ajax Cape Town at the top of the Premiership table.
