Kaizer Chiefs head coach Arthur Zwane has given an injury update ahead of his side’s DStv Premiership game with Stellenbosch FC in Cape Town.

The Amakhosi come into the game on the back a four-match unbeaten run and could climb into fourth place should they beat Stellies.

However, they will miss one of their key players in Zitha Kwinika after he received his fourth booking in the 2-1 win over Swallows, while George Matlou is also still suspended and four players remain on the treatment table.

We go into the game without Kwinika because of bookings. He received a fourth yellow [card],” he told the club’s media department.

“We don’t have Khama [Billiat] and [Mulomowandau] Mathoho, who are not fully fit for the game.

“We are missing Happy Mashiane. He has just started training yesterday, as has Phathutshedzo Nange, after recovering from flu. George [Matlou] is still unavailable. I think this is the last game of his suspension.”

Zwane also confirmed that all the absences give youngster Zamkele Zwane another chance in the squad, but other Chiefs youngsters are currently with the national team.

“To compensate for these missing players, we have brought in one of the youngsters from the Development, Samkelo Zwane, for his second camp,” he added.

“We wanted to bring in more from there but most of the players we had n mind recently got a national team call-up and they are doing international duty, but we are happy for them because international experience will help them grow and when they return, they will come back better.

“Whenever the opportunity arises again, we will be willing to give them the opportunity to join the first team because they are the future of the Club.”

The game kicks off at 15:30 at DHL Stadium.
