Improved Form, Baxter To Get More Options?

A fixture free weekend is a blessing in disguise for Kaizer Chiefs, with a key player likely to return when they host high-flying Stellenbosch FC.

Cole Alexander has been absent for Amakhosi’s previous two games when they thrashed Chippa United 4-0 and followed that up with another DStv Premiership victory away to SuperSport United last weekend.

The midfielder arrived at Naturena at the start of the season on a free transfer from Odisha FC in India, where he briefly worked with coach Stuart Baxter, now at Chiefs for a second spell, making his transition almost seamless.

Cole had started all seven matches he featured in before his injury, which is not expected to keep him out for too long.

Indications are that with the club not involved in any action this weekend due to the MTN8 final between Mamelodi Sundowns and Cape Town City being given all the attention, it gives the midfielder even more time to recover.

He might be ready for Stellenbosch next week Tuesday at the FNB Stadium, with the visitors enjoying a purple patch and having moved to second place on the log following their narrow 1-0 win over Marumo Gallants on Wednesday.

Baxter is still also waiting for Lebo Manyama, Dumisani Zuma, Leonardo Castro and Siyabonga Ngezana to come off the injury list – but they are unlikely to be named in the match day squad when Chiefs take on Stellenbosch FC.

There were concerns over Bernard Parker and Khama Billiat after they were substituted in the dying minutes the SuperSport match.

But it looked more like their withdrawal was precaution instead of anything serious.
