Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela is delighted to have Camaldine Abraw and Tshepo Masilela back for the clash with Free State Stars on Wednesday night.

Abraw makes his return for Amakhosi up front after missing the last three games due to a knee injury, while Masilela earns a starting berth as a replacement for suspended Keegan Ritchie at left-back.

"Camaldine is included in the traveling squad. We are happy to have him back and available for selection because this will give us options up front," Komphela told the club's official website.

"We will miss the services of Keegan [Ritchie] and Lorenzo [Gordinho] for this match. With Ritchie suspended, Tsepo will return to the starting line-up and we welcome that even though Ritchie played well in the past three matches.

"We have a full-strength squad to travel to Bethlehem. It is another match that will not be any different from the other matches we have played this season. It is going to be tough."

Komphela expects a tough battle against Ea Lla Koto, who are set to face Orlando Pirates in the Nedbank Cup semi-finals on Saturday.

"We expect nothing but a tough match against Stars," he said. "We will not underestimate them at all. 

"They have done well in the league and are in the semi-finals of the Nedbank Cup. We know we have to dig deep to return with the maximum points."
