Soweto Derby

Soweto Derby Boost For Chiefs As Defender Returns

Steve Komphela has been given a welcome boost ahead of this weekend’s Soweto Derby, with Teenage Hadebe returning to training after an ankle injury.
 
 
The 22-year-old was absent as the Amakhosi drew 0-0 with Bloemfontein Celtic over the weekend, keeping a clean sheet but missing the chance to close the gap on Mamelodi Sundowns at the top of the table. 
 
Chiefs’ first team physiotherapist, Dave Milner, gave an update on the Zimbabwean’s situation on their official website this week, saying that he was rested as a precautionary measure against Siwelele. 
 
Milner explained, “Teenage felt a pain in his ankle last week and we decided to rest him for the Celtic game. Today we put him through some tests and we feel that he will be able to train the squad again.” 
 
 
It remains to be seen whether Hadebe will be given the chance to play in his first Soweto Derby on Saturday afternoon, and Komphela may be tempted to keep his defensive line unchanged given their steady display against Celtic. 
 
Hadebe has made 10 Absa Premiership appearances since his Amakhosi debut in November and has only lost one of the matches that he has played for the club.
