Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs have confirmed Ramahlwe Mphahlele and Nkosingiphile Ngcobo are nearing a return to full training.

Mphahlele has been struggling with a groin injury while Ngcobo has a troublesome Achilles problem.

Mphahlele have featured for Chiefs this season while Ngcobo picked up the knock shortly after making his debut at the Soweto club last season.

Khama Billiat is another player suffering from a groin injury although further updates were available on the Zimbabwean's fitness the time of writing.

"Mphahlele has had another infiltration into the groin. His pain is subsiding. The good news is that the fullback will start jogging this week," a statement on the Chiefs website read.

"Ngcobo is another ray of hope coming through with the news that the youngster has started training with the team albeit making no contact yet. The young midfield dynamo is recovering from an Achilles injury picked up last season."

Ernst Middendorp’s table-topping side returns to action on 14 September when they face Polokwane City in the Absa Premiership.
