Player Watch: Billiat In Fitness Race For High-Flying Chiefs

Kaizer Chiefs fans will be itching to see their team back in action this weekend, but it remains to be seen if their star player will be able to feature… 
 
 
The Glamour Boys are currently sitting pretty at the top of the Absa Premiership after producing their best start to a league campaign since their title-winning 2014/15 season under Stuart Baxter, and return to action on Saturday against Polokwane City. 
 
Billiat was forced to pull out of Zimbabwe’s squad that is up against Somalia in their first World Cup qualifier, and his absence was felt as they went down 1-0 in the first leg a few days ago. 
 
A statement regarding his injury on the Chiefs’ official website last week read, “Billiat got a knock to his right pelvic bone during the Amakhosi’s 2-1 win in their away Absa Premiership encounter that took place last Tuesday against Cape Town City, he has had a scan done and it is unclear how long he needs to recover at this stage.” 
 
 
It remains to be seen whether the 29-year-old will be able to make a return to action against Polokwane on September 24, however the fact that he was withdrawn from the Warriors’ squad completely may suggest that he will need a bit more time to recover.
 
Ramahlwe Mphahlele, however, could be back in contention after he sustained a groin injury last month, with the defender back jogging last week.
