Kaizer Chiefs will still be without Erick Mathoho as they aim to return to winning ways tomorrow, but Ernst Middendorp will welcome back two senior players.
The Glamour Boys are looking to bounce back from their shock Telkom Knockout defeat to Maritzburg United, with Stellenbosch their next opponents in their Absa Premiership title push.
‘Tower’, Willard Katsande and Daniel Akpeyi were forced to sit out the 2-1 defeat to the Team of Choice on Sunday afternoon due to suspension, and while Katsande and Akpeyi are now back available for selection, the centre back will sit out the game against Stellies as he completes his two-match ban.
Middendorp will be eager to see a response from his team in the Western Cape as they attempt to extend their lead at the top of the table following their disappointment in Nelspruit, and he’s expected to make changes to the side once more.
It remains to be seen whether Katsande or Akpeyi will return v Stellenbosch on Wednesday, and he may opt to keep young Bruce Bvuma between the sticks after his impressive showing at Mbombela Stadium, while Khama Billiat could also return if he recovers from the hamstring niggle that kept him out of the semi-final.
Chiefs face Stellenbosch on Wednesday night at 19h30.
