Soweto Derby

Chiefs Defender Safe For Soweto Derby?

Kaizer Chiefs haven't had much luck with injuries lately, however there is thought to be some good news after their player had to be hauled off in their last Absa Premiership game.

Kgotso Moleko had to be taken off after being given a starting berth for Chiefs in their 1-0 defeat at the hands of Cape Town City, with the defender colliding with Virgil Vries late in the first half at FNB Stadium as the half time whistle approached.

No update has been given on the defender's well being, however the Siya crew have been led to believe that the 29-year-old has been training with the club this week and is in contention for the big clash against Orlando Pirates on Saturday afternoon.

With Ramahlwe Mphahlele struggling for match fitness after a long-term injury and Reeve Frosler a newcomer to the Glamour Boys, Ernst Middendorp may wish to call upon Moleko for the Soweto Derby this weekend, although that will only be decided in the coming days.

Chiefs still have the likes of Itumeleng Khune, Lebohang Manyama and Joseph Molangoane who are out injured for this weekend's showpiece, however, Middendorp will be happy to have the bulk of his squad available for the must-win tie at FNB Stadium.
