Kaizer Chiefs have confirmed that striker Samir Nurkovic has overcome a niggle and will be available for Tuesday’s Caf Champions League clash with Horoya of Guinea, but five other stars are set to miss the game through injury.
Amakhosi were held to 1-1 draw with SuperSport United this past weekend and now have to quickly shift their attention to their first-ever Caf Champions League group game.
Gavin Hunt’s team saw their first match of the competition against Wydad Casablanca of Morocco postponed after issues regarding travel and coronavirus restrictions.
They will thus be desperate to pick up a victory on Tuesday and get their competition off to a good start, but will be without Khama Billiat, Happy Mashiane, Dumisani Zuma, Mulomowandau Mathoho and Kgotso Moleko.
Along with Nurkovic, midfielder Willard Katsande has also shaken off his niggle and is available for selection.
‘Unavailable Players: Injuries: Billiat, Mashiane, Zuma, Mathoho Family Responsibility: Moleko Players available for selection after Saturday’s niggles: Nurković and Katsande,’ Chiefs confirmed on their official Twitter account.
Injuries: Billiat, Mashiane, Zuma, Mathoho
Family Responsibility: Moleko
