Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs have confirmed that Siphelele Ntshangase is fit to start against former club Baroka, despite picking up an injury against Free State Stars.

The 25-year-old was instrumental in Amakhosi's 3-0 win over Ea Lla Koto in the MTN8 quarter-finals, playing an instrumental role in creating their first two goals before being forced off late on.

However, on Monday, Chiefs wrote on their official Twitter account that Ntshangase "has been cleared to play tomorrow".

It was not all good news for the Glamour Boys as they also announced that Virgil Vries has been ruled out for two weeks after injuring his medial knee ligament.

This comes after they confirmed that Joseph Molangoane - who picked up the worst of Amakhosi's three injuries on Saturday - would need surgery to recover from an injury to his lower right leg.

Giovanni Solinas' side will face Bakgaga at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Tuesday evening.
