Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs head coach Steve Komphela revealed that Itumeleng Khune bruised his hip during the penalty shootout against SuperSport United and is being monitored by the club's medical staff.
Matsatsansta beat Amakhosi 5-3 on penalties to advance to the Nedbank Cup semi-finals, after playing out to a 1-1 draw at the FNB Stadium on Saturday.
“Itu (Itumeleng Khune) is bruised on his hip,” Komphela confirming to the club's website.
“We will have to monitor his injury going to the next game.”
After a goalless first-half, Jeremy Brockie broke the deadlock in the 72nd minute with a brilliant volley, but Ramahlwe Mphahlele kept Amakhosi in the tie with a late equaliser nine minutes from time.
Both sides could not find a winner during extra time and the shootout lottery ensued, where George Maluleka struck the woodwork to allow Brockie to secure Matsatsantsa's progress with the decisive spot-kick.
“Nobody will remember that you missed a penalty during extra time (Bernard Parker’s 13th minute penalty of extra time),” said Komphela.
“We also missed a penalty (George Maluleka) during the shoot-out and got knocked out of the cup.
“We will go back to take stock. We will get the bodies fresh and get the focus back on track.
Chiefs travel to Cape Town on Tuesday 25 April to face Cape Town City in a top of the table clash.
Kick off is at 19:30.
