Cape Town - Tsepo Masilela and Siboniso Gaxa are available
for Kaizer Chiefs ahead of their crunch CAF Champions League first-round clash
against Raja Casablanca at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.

Masilela missed Chiefs' 1-0 Premiership loss to Maritzburg
United on Wednesday evening, which saw Gaxa played out of position at left-back,
without much success.
The former Bafana Bafana right-back was on the receiving end
of some serious knocks against a Team of choice side that took no prisoners in
their desperation for victory.
Chiefs will be hard-pressed to improve on their dismal CAF
Champions League record, and tests do not come more tough than the Moroccan
powerhouse that is Raja Casablanca, who have won the continental competition
three times in their esteemed history.
While their last triumph may have come in 1999, they were
losing finalists in the 2013 FIFA Club World Cup final.
But their track record does not faze Amakhosi captain Tefu
Mashamaite, who said reputations count for nothing on the field.
"The players know what to expect and it's not about the
information I'm going to feed them as captain," he said. "They know
Raja is a tough team and they are geared up for it. We are not going to be
shaking and panicking because of their reputation."
Coach Stuart Baxter refused to give too much away in terms
of team selection, although he did suggest that some of the substitutes in
midweek may well get a run from the start in Durban.
The first leg clash will be followed by the second leg in
Morocco in two weeks' time.
Kick-off is at 19:00.
