Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Teko Modise is doubtful for Saturday's clash with Free State Stars but striker Cuthbert Malajila could make his return in Atteridgeville.
According to Sundowns' website, Modise has started gym work after sustaining a hamstring injury and may miss out on the weekend.
However, Malajila could feature following a lengthy layoff. The Zimbabwean last played in late September against Jomo Cosmos.
In other injury news, left-back Tebogo Langerman is still recovering from a quad strain. Flavio Bento and Rheece Evans are nursing groin complaints, while goalkeeper Wayne Sandilands took a knock to the face during a recent Bafana Bafana camp. Fellow keeper Thela Ngobeni is carrying a finger injury.
The Brazilians will take on Stars at Lucas Moripe Stadium, with kick-off at 20h15.
Downs are second on the Absa Premiership table with 20 points from 10 games - three points off leaders Bidvest Wits, and nine ahead of 11th-placed Ea Lla Koto.
