Kaizer Chiefs are currently facing tough times, and as they get ready for their next league encounter against Bloemfontein Celtic, their woes seem to have increased. Head coach Steve Komphela has more added pressure on his shoulders as five of his players are likely to be ruled out of the match, which is not ideal for a mentor who wants to end an seven-game winless streak.
Itumeleng Khune, William Twala and Tshepo Masilela are suffering from injury, while Sibusiso Khumalo and the instrumental Willard Katsande are out due to suspension, and the supporters have expressed their feelings over the situation Amakhosi face.
"Let's see if he can overturn this game to a victory without the see ice of his best players." – Bigboy aka Melo
"Already making excuses for the next game. Injuries are part of the game." – maino
However, there was one supporter who thought that this could be a chance for other players to prove themselves.
"It's a blessing in disguise for my noisy neighbours, now they can attack freely. Katsande is bad passer of the ball, his presence doesn't do any favours for the offensive players, he is just like Issa Saar. Mkhabela and Buchanan can drive that midfield with Parker as a NO. 10, Chirambadare on the left, Shabba on the right and Katsvairo as a top man." – arlandomadrid
Could these injuries and suspensions be a blessing in disguise for Chiefs?
