Kaizer Chiefs have confirmed the unavailability of no less than seven players ahead of their CAF Champions League tie against Angolan outfit Petro de Luanda.
Amakhosi, who have picked up just one point from their first two group C matches, confirmed that goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune will not be available for the match following the tragic passing of his sister.
Right back Kgotso Moleko returned to the club from family responsibility, but the Soweto giants confirmed that he will not form part of the match day squad at FNB Stadium on Saturday, March 06.
Captain Ramahlwe Mphahlele is out serving a one-game suspension.
Bad news for Amakhosi is that strikers Samir Nurkovic and Leonardo Castro will not be available due to injury. Amakhosi have been struggling to get goals in recent weeks, so their absence will add more problems for coach Gavin Hunt, who is in desperate need of a victory to ease pressure on his shoulders. Dumisani Zuma is another who is out nursing an injury.
Zimbabwean international Khama Billiat is on his way back and is progressing well according to the club.
