'Yeye' ruled out for AmaZulu

Stuart Baxter has confirmed that Reneilwe Letsholonyane will play no part in Kaizer Chiefs' final match of the year.
'Yeye' was stretchered off in the 64th minute in Amakhosi's 1-0 win over Golden Arrows last night, after straining the ligaments in his leg in a bad tackle.
He was replaced by Josta Dladla, who later was paired with Ivan Bukenya, who came on on 85 minutes.
Amakhosi take on AmaZulu at Moses Mabhida Stadium on Sunday, but Letsholonyane has already been ruled out.
"He suffered an injury and he won't take part against AmaZulu, which is a big blow to us as he is fighter and you saw he worked like a lion," Baxter says.
"Of course, his services will be missed in the final round of matches.
"He will probably be back in January, that's what I'm hoping, because we've got so many games on the horizon.
"The break will help us a wee bit to recharge the guys' batteries and we will give them a formula of how to take care of themselves to stay fit and be prepared as we are just at the halfway line of the League."
Chiefs will be taking part in the CAF Champions League next season, and will meet their Namibian counterparts Black Africa FC in the opening round between 7 to 9 February, with the return duel scheduled for 14 to 16 February.
