Chiefs Hampered by Injuries

Kaizer Chiefs’ doctor’s rooms are very busy this week as the team prepares for their final match of the season against Swallows FC on Saturday.

Players such as S’fiso Hlanti and Lebogang Manyama are still out due to the long-term injuries they suffered earlier in the season. They were recently joined by Keagan Dolly and Samir Nurković in the last two weeks.

This week the doctors have had to attend to Leonardo Castro who picked up an injury in the game against Sekhukhune on Saturday and Siyabonga Ngezana who is out with a hamstring injury.

Midfielders Kgaogelo Sekgota, Nkosingiphile Ngcobo and Sabelo Radebe did not train due to a bout of flu.

Added to the team’s injury woes is Cole Alexander’s suspension. The player will miss the last match of the season after picking up a fourth yellow card on Saturday.

The players will be monitored closely to ensure that they recover well ahead of the pre-season training.

The match between Amakhosi and the Dube Birds will start at 15:00 at FNB Stadium on Saturday and both teams’ supporters are encouraged to go online and purchase their tickets early through www.ticketmaster.co.za or at Computicket outlets at Shoprite/Checkers at R70 per ticket.
