Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs reports that the club's players have a clean bill of health aside from goalkeeper Brilliant Khuzwayo, who recently underwent ankle surgery.

Following last Saturday's bruising win over Mamelodi Sundowns, a number of players picked up knocks. ]

Itumeleng Khune went down with a minor thigh strain but is fit for Sunday's last 16 Nedbank Cup clash with Acornbush United.

Lorenzo Gordinho got a cut to the head, but the Chiefs medical team report that no concussion was suffered. Substitute George Lebese took an ankle knock but will also be ready to face United.

Tsepo Masilela was taken off late in the second half as a precaution after he experienced severe cramp in his calf but he, too, is expected to be fit. 

In addition, Lewis Macha has returned to training on Thursday after a stomach issue.

Meanwhile, Chiefs’ physiotherapist David Milner updated Khuzwayo's situation.

He told the club's official website: "As Brilliant can't really train at the moment, he has been given some time off. His rehabilitation in the gym will start in six weeks’ time."
