JOHANNESBURG: Kaizer Chiefs have updated their sweat on the fitness of three defenders Ramahlwe Mphahlele, Eric Mathoho and Teenage Hadebe whom are sidelined for Platinum Stars fixture.
Amakhosi will face Dikwena this weekend without their trio who sustained injuries, in a heavy defeat against Chippa United last week Saturday. Chiefs’ first team physiotherapist David Milner delivered an injury updated on KC club website.
“We have a few injury concerns to deal with after the Chippa United game. The match resulted in three players getting injuries.”
Ramahlwe Mphahlele was substituted 14 minutes into the game with hamstring problems.
“Rama will take seven days to recover from the hamstring,” Milner explained. “We will be monitoring him over the next few days.”
Chiefs ended the match playing with 10-men after Erick Mathoho got injured when the substitutions were already exhausted.
“Tower had a blow to the head and thereafter he felt dizzy,” the physiotherapist comments on Mathoho having to leave the pitch. “He will be out for seven to ten days.”
Teenage Hadebe, meanwhile, injured his ankle. “He is suspected to have aggravated his ankle. We will assess in the next four days.”
The Zimbabwean defender, however, would have missed the Dikwena game anyway due to having collected four yellow cards.
