George Maluleka is fit again and returns to Kaizer Chiefs’ starting line-up against SuperSport United on Wednesday evening.
Maluleka replaces Keagan Buchanan, who started in last Sunday’s first Absa Premiership match against Bloemfontein Celtic. That game ended in a one-all draw.
Itumeleng Khune, however, is still out, due to his chest infection. He will be replaced again between the posts by the ever reliable Brilliant Khuzwayo.
The encounter between Kaizer Chiefs and SuperSport United will take place at FNB Stadium this Wednesday evening (kick-off is at 19:30).
The clash will be refereed by Daniel Bennett.
