Kaizer Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt has given an update on Khama Billiat after he missed their 1-0 defeat by Chippa United in the DStv Premiership on Wednesday afternoon.

The Zimbabwe international recently picked up an injury which kept him sidelined for around three months, but upon his return he only played five games.

However, Billiat lasted only 45 minutes during Amakhosi’s 2-1 victory over Mamelodi Sundowns this past Sunday before he was injured again.

Hunt revealed that Billiat injured the same leg that was broken and he could be sidelined for two to three weeks.

‘I am not sure. He’s got a kick on the same leg that he broke, so it’s not good. With us playing every two or three games, if you miss two or three weeks, he is going to miss a lot of games again,’ Hunt told media after the defeat by Chippa United.

‘So, I am not sure what the diagnosis is there, but he certainly was not walking well. Well, he couldn’t walk really.’

Kaizer Chiefs will now travel to the Free State to take on Bloemfontein Celtic in their next league match at Dr Molemela Stadium on Saturday.
