Chippa United have been boosted by the return of fullbacks Fares Hachi and Zitha Macheke for tonight's clash with Cape Town City at Cape Town Stadium.
New signing Hachi missed the 4-2 loss to Orlando Pirates on Sunday with flu, while Macheke was suspended for the tie.
However, both returned to training ahead of this evening's encounter in the Mother City.
Meanwhile, influential recruit Linda Mntambo and fellow midfielder Kurt Lentjies remain doubtful after missing the match with Bucs with a calf strain and flu respectively.
Chippa are ninth on the table with 27 points from 22 games - four points behind the seventh-placed Citizens, whose 2-0 loss to Baroka on Tuesday was their fourth straight defeat in the league.
Chilli Boys coach Teboho Moloi believes a top-four finish is still on for the Port Elizabeth-based outfit.
