Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs have confirmed that goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune is back in camp with the rest of the squad ahead of Wednesday's Absa Premiership clash with Baroka FC.

Khune missed Saturday's 3-0 victory over Free State Stars in the MTN8 after his was granted leave to deal with personal matters.

Chiefs communications manager Vina Maphosa confirmed that Amakhosi captain has returned to camp and is part of the squad that travelled to Polokwane for the clash at Peter Mokaba Stadium.

Giovanni Solinas clinched his first victory as Amakhosi mentor with the win over Ea Lla Koto but is still chasing for his first three points in the Premiership with the Glamour Boys.

The Soweto giants played a 1-1 draw against Mamelodi Sundowns in their Premiership opener and lost 3-1 to Bidvest Wits in the second game.

Maphosa told Metro FM: "Itu had personal matters to attend to and was granted leave to do so. But he returned and is in the team that travelled to Polokwane.

"His selection for the match is subject to conditioning and technical elements going into selection processes.

"But we have three goalkeepers in camp. That is Itu, Brylon Lee Peterson and Bruce Bvuma because Virgil Vries got a knock on the knee and will be out for two weeks."

Kick-off is at 19:30.
