Khune has endured a tough 2019 after picking up a serious injury 12 months ago, and was dealt another setback back in September when, just two games into his comeback, he was ruled out for what looks likely to be the rest of the year.

After an extended break between games, some supporters had been hopeful that Khune could return to action against Bloemfontein Celtic this evening when Chiefs go into battle at Moses Mabhida Stadium, however they will be left disappointed…

As quoted by Chiefs’ official website today, Ernst Middendorp revealed that it the Amakhosi captain won’t even make the bench, with Daniel Akpeyi set to start.

The German said, “I can confirm Daniel Akpeyi will be in goals and the next prepared goalie is Bruce Bvuma, so he will be on the bench. Khune is working on a programme to get him ready to play.”
