Kaizer Chiefs physiotherapist David Milner has confirmed that goalkeeper Brilliant Khuzwayo will return to the squad in six weeks, following his ankle injury.

In their last encounter against Mamelodi Sundowns, several Amakhosi players sustained knocks and bruises in their fiercely contested 2-1 victory last week.

The team physiotherapist confirmed that Khuzwayo recently underwent an operation on his ankle, and is only set to return in six weeks time.

‘As Brilliant can’t really train at the moment, he has been given some time off. His rehabilitation in the gym will start in six weeks’ time,’ Milner told the Kaizer Chiefs website.

Meanwhile, Itumeleng Khune went down late in the second half and is currently nurturing his thigh muscle strain, but will be available for selection against Acornbush United in the Nedbank Cup Last 16.

Lorenzo Gordinho sustained a cut to his head in the first half after an aerial battle, while George Lebese got a knock to his ankle, but has since returned to full training.

While Tsepo Masilela was replaced late in the second half when his calf was cramping lightly, and was taken out as a precautionary measure.

The Zambian striker Lewis Macha hasn’t trained for the last week due to stomach issues, although he has returned to training.

Kaizer Chiefs will go head-to-head against giant killers Acornbush United in the Nedbank Cup Round of 16 clash on Sunday.

The match at the Kabokweni Stadium kicks off at 15:00.
