Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs are suffering with something of an injury crisis with the news that Lorenzo Gordinho has been ruled out with a fractured hand.

Coach Ernst Middendorp told the club's official website: "It's unfortunate Lorenzo Gordinho is ruled out with a hand fracture. We are still waiting for Ramahlwe Mphahlele to return to full fitness as well.

"We hope to not have Lorenzo out for too long. There's still a bit of time required to have Joseph Molangoane, Itumeleng Khune, Philani Zulu and Mulomowandau Mathoho return to action."

The Glamour Boys take on AmaZulu on Wednesday evening in Durban as they look to return to winning ways in the Absa Premiership after a recent defeat to Zambia's Zesco United in a CAF Confederations Cup playoff first leg tie.

Kick-off is at 19:30.
