One In, One Out At Chiefs: Another Key Player Suspended
Kaizer Chiefs will welcome back Joseph Molangoane from suspension after he missed the Golden Arrows game, but have another player missing.
Molangoane, 29, missed his first game of the Absa Premiership season on Sunday since being given the all-clear to play for the Amakhosi, sitting out the 1-1 draw against Arrows after picking up his fourth yellow card of the campaign.
With Chiefs officially out of the title race, the club is aiming for a highest mathematical position of second place but will have to go into Saturday’s game without talismanic midfielder, Willard Katsande.
The Zimbabwean has played more league minutes than any other player at the club so far this season, with the only game he missed so far coming back in December after he’d picked up his fourth booking.
Now, following his eighth booking this weekend, Katsande will be forced to sit out another game as Chiefs look to end a four-game winless streak, meaning that Steve Komphela will have to find a replacement for him, likely to be Lucky Baloyi.
It remains to be seen whether Siphiwe Tshabalala, who was rested against Abafana Bes’thende and is expected to be fit, will return for the Glamour Boys against Polokwane City.
