It’s been a tough first season for coach Gavin Hunt who has also had to deal with injuries to Samir Nurkovic, Dumisani Zuma, and Kearyn Baccus with Kaizer Chief
Kaizer Chiefs have provided an injury update ahead of their league fixture against Stellenbosch FC at the Danie Craven Stadium on Saturday evening, a 17:00 kick-off.
The players in question are centre-back Ramahlwe Mphahlele and midfielders Lebogang Lesako and Nkosingiphile Ngcobo.
All three players picked up injuries or knocks in Chiefs’ most recent outing, a 3-0 win over Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila at the FNB Stadium.
“Player Injuries,” the club wrote on their Twitter page. “Captain Ramahlwe is undergoing a late fitness test after a hamstring injury. Lesako will be out for 3 of 4 weeks after a knee injury. Speed recovery! Ngcobo is available for selection after limping out before the match ended on Tuesday.”
Lesko has not been a regular this season and was making a rare appearance against TTM. Mphahlele has been one of Amakhosi’s best and most consistent defenders this term and is seemingly thriving with the responsibility of the captain’s armband.
Ngcobo has been in scintillating form in midfield of late and has scored two goals in his last two appearances for the Soweto outfit.
