Komphela previews Cape Town City match

Sibusiso Khumalo will make a welcome return against Cape Town City on Tuesday night, 29 November. The full-back got injured a fortnight ago in a game against Mamelodi Sundowns.

“Khumalo is back and will play some role in tonight’s match,” coach Steve Komphela comments. “We are happy he recovered in time for this match to give us more options in our selection.”

Chiefs and Cape Town City will face each other tonight in an Absa Premiership clash at FNB Stadium (kick-off is at 19:30).

“William Twala is still out with an ankle injury,” Komphela confirms. “He is involved in light training at the moment and shows good signs of returning soon.”

“Despite the injuries, however, we have prepared well for this game,” the Chiefs mentor continues. “We have identified the areas of concern and are working around the clock to fix our goal scoring ratio to chances that we have been creating.”

Emmanuel Letlotlo is also ruled out of tonight’s match. Komphela furthermore reveals the late withdrawal of Enocent Mkhabela due to ailment: “We planned to have Enocent play a role in the game, but the doctors advised us yesterday that he had some stomach discomfort. Subsequently he won’t play a part in this one.”

“City are a threat to any team at present,” says Komphela, “but we have it all worked out to counter their threats.”

Tickets for this most anticipate match between Amakhosi and City are sold at Computicket and Shoprite/Checkers for R40.
