Chiefs Leave Out Injured Maluleka & Mthembu
Kaizer Chiefs duo, George Maluleka and Siphelele Mthembu, have been left at home by the Amakhosi ahead of today’s CAF Champions League clash with Township Rollers.
Both Maluleka and Mthembu have recently picked up injuries, and the Siya crew have been informed that it was decided that the pair would be left at home rather than risk them in Botswana.
The news will come as a blow to head coach, Stuart Baxter, who will want to put out a strong team against Rollers later today as his side look to negotiate their way past the champions of Botswana and into the next round of the CCL.
While the loss of Maluleka, who has been in fine form for the Amakhosi this season, as well as Nedbank Cup hattrick hero, Mthembu, will be a loss for the Glamour Boys, they will still be hoping that they have enough quality to build on their 2-1 lead from the first leg.
Chiefs take on Rollers at the National Stadium in Gaborone at 15h00 this afternoon.
