Kaizer Chiefs latest TEAM and INJURY news!

Arthur Zwane confirmed earlier this week that both Itumeleng Khune and Caleb Bimenyimana are doubtful for today’s clash.

The good news is that the injured duo were to undergo late fitness tests.

Should Bimenyimana be ruled out, Zwane will have to make a tough call on whether the misfiring Khama Billiat will start or whether Ashley Du Preez will slot up top.

In terms of goalkeeping, Brandon Petersen is expected to start should Khune miss out for Kaizer Chiefs.

Zwane also might be tempted to start Dillon Solomons in place of Reeve Frosler given the raw pace Orlando Pirates have in attack.


Today’s clash can be live streamed on Multichoice’s streaming platform DStv now. (Subscription required).
