Free State Stars defender Daniel Cardoso has been cleared for action after a lengthy spell out with a stress fracture.
Cardoso is yet to play this season, having also missed a sizeable chunk of last campaign with the injury.
However, he is fit again, as are his teammates Robert Sankara, Andrea Fileccia and Danny Venter. Defender Sankara had a hamstring complaint, while Belgian striker Fileccia was nursing a bruised thigh.
Rudolf Bester (hamstring), Sibusiso Mthethwa (shoulder) and Hendrik Somaeb (foot) remain on the sidelines with their respective knocks.
Stars coach Tom Saintfiet told his club's website: “Rudolf is still out. Together with Sibusiso Mthethwa, who is also still out. Then also Hendrik is out.
“But Andrea is back fit, Robert Sankara is fit and Daniel Cardoso is fit. Danny is also fit. The group is bigger and bigger, so we have much more to choose from for the coming matches.”
