Chiefs' List of Suspension Worries Grows, Four On Tight Rope
After last night’s Absa Premiership defeat to Chippa United, Steve Komphela now has four of his players on the brink of missing their final game of the year.

Chiefs went into the game with the Chilli Boys with George Maluleka and Joseph Molangoane just one yellow card away from suspension, and while the duo avoided being booked, the same cannot be said for their teammates, Willard Katsande and Siyabonga Ngezana.
Both players, along with Teenage Hadebe, went into the referee’s book as they succumbed to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Chippa in Port Elizabeth, and will now be walking a tightrope with Maluleka and Molangoane against Platinum Stars this weekend.
Katsande has already served one suspension due to the accumulation of yellow cards, with his booking against Chippa is his seventh of the season in all competitions.
Komphela’s side are now five games without a win in the Absa Premiership, the fifth time this has happened during his time in charge, and slipped down to seventh place as their form continues to stutter.
Chiefs face Ajax Cape Town in their last game of 2017, in a couple of weeks’ time, and their head coach will be hoping that the quartet can make sure they remain available as the year comes to an end.
