Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs may be without Sibusiso Khumalo and William Twala when the Glamour Boys take on Mamelodi Sundowns on November 19.

Both first team regulars sustained knocks in the Telkom Knockout defeat to Free State Stars recently, and have been out of training ever since the game.

Khumalo picked up a knee injury while Twala is nursing an ankle injury.

Both were injured against Ea Lla Koto but were unable to come off as Chiefs had already used up their three substitutions.

Sources at Naturena have revealed that the pair are expected to be on the sidelines for the foreseeable future, and may miss the massive league clash with Sundowns after the international break.

Twala has featured in every match for coach Steve Komphela in 2016/17, while Khumalo has been battling with Tsepo Masilela to make the left-back starting role his own.

Amakhosi's clash with the Brazilians will take place at Loftus Versfeld Stadium at 15:30.
