Cape Town - Kgotso Moleko has joined Gustavo Paez and a host of other Kaizer Chiefs players currently sidelined through injury.
This news was confirmed in an injury update on the Amakhosi website
on Friday, ahead of their upcoming league clash away to Mamelodi
Sundowns next Tuesday evening.
Zimbabwean defender Teenage Hadebe, yet to play for the club, has
returned to light training, but another central defender, Lorenzo
Gordinho, is still three weeks away from a return as he recovers from
Leading goal-scorer Paez, meanwhile, looks likely to miss at least
another month of action, if not more, while there is similarly bad news
on Moleko, who has been a regular in the absence of another injury
victim, Ramahlwe Mphahlele.
"The Venezuelan striker will be in a protective boot for another
three weeks before resuming his rehabilitation to full fitness," read a
statement on the Amakhosi website.
"Full-back Kgotso Moleko suffered a knee ligament in the Sparta
Macufe Cup last weekend. Moleko will be in a brace and will be out for
six to eight weeks."
Left-back Tsepo Masilela and striker Emmanuel Letlotlo are also out injured for Steve Komphela's team.
The Glamour Boys face the Brazilians at the Loftus Versveld Stadium with the action getting underway at 19:30.
