Kaizer Chiefs defender, Tsepo Masilela, could return against Polokwane City on Wednesday, although he is yet to start full training.
The 28-year-old picked up a thigh injury ahead of Bafana Bafana’s clash with Spain this month, and consequently had to withdraw from the team, also missing Amakhosi’s Telkom Knockout defeat to Platinum Stars.

Masilela has been one of Chiefs’ few consistent performers so far this season, and Baxter will no doubt be looking to have him back sooner rather than later.
The defender hasn’t started full training following his injury, although that could well happen this week following his weekend off.
Keegan Ritchie stepped in for Masilela at left-back against Dikwena, and could get another start against City this week should the Bafana international not recover in time.
Chiefs need a win against Polokwane City in order to keep up the pace on the PSL’s early frontrunners, with Stuart Baxter’s side currently sitting in sixth place.
