Chiefs Khune-less Once More…

Kaizer Chiefs face at least two more games with Itumeleng Khune missing in action following his injury, and this campaign could end up being one to forget for the shot-stopper…
 
Khune has played two Absa Premiership games for Chiefs this season since making a return from a long-term injury that kept him out for the bulk of 2019, however has once again been struck down by an ailment that Ernst Middendorp says will keep him out for the remainder of October.
 
The 32-year-old made just 13 league appearances last season as his season was cut short by a serious shoulder problem, but his most unproductive season was back in 2014/15 when he was able to make just 10 league appearances in the campaign when Chiefs last won the title.
 
As things stand, Khune will miss the Telkom Knockout clash with Cape Town City next weekend, and will also be out of contention for the crucial encounter with Mamelodi Sundowns on October 27th, while it remains to be seen whether his layoff will run into November as well.
 
 
Chiefs have called upon Daniel Akpeyi for the most part this season as the Nigerian stakes his claim for the number one spot in Middendorp’s side, however Bruce Bvuma recently put himself back into the German’s plans following his return from injury to start against Bloemfontein Celtic in the 2-0 Macufe Cup loss.
 
Khune, who remains Chiefs’ number one when fit, has played 15 games or less in three of Chiefs’ last five Absa Premiership campaigns, and if his luck doesn’t change then 2019/20 could be another one to forget on a personal level for the Bafana Bafana international.
