Chiefs take on Golden Arrows in the Nedbank Cup on Sunday as they go after a trophy which is probably their last chance at silverware this season, and Komphela will be wary of changing up a side that has lost just one of their last 10 matches.
 
 
The Amakhosi’s head coach can now welcome back Bernard Parker after he recovered from an ankle injury, while Tsepo Masilela is also recovered and on the verge of being available.
 
Teenage Hadebe and Joseph Molangoane return from their respective suspensions, though Kabelo Mahlasela is only expected back around April.
 
Chiefs’ first team physiotherapist, Dave Milner, gave an update on the club’s current injury situation to their official website, with both good and bad news for Komphela in terms of selection. 
 
Milner said, “Parker has recovered from an ankle injury. He is back in training with the rest of the squad.
 
“Tsepo has recovered from his ankle injury. He is on continuous assessment to get him ready for full training.”
 
Meanwhile, the club also confirmed that Philani Zulu (sprained ankle) and George Maluleka (calf strain) are both being assessed as Chiefs prepare to take on Golden Arrows.
 
It was explained that the duo will be ‘evaluated throughout the week’ before a decision is made on whether they will be eligible to play or not.
