Kaizer Chiefs have revealed the projected recovery time for sidelined defenders Ramahlwe Mphahlele, Erick Mathoho and Teenage Hadebe.
The trio sustained injuries in the team's 3-0 loss to Chippa United at FNB Stadium last Saturday.
Mphahlele was substituted 14 minutes in with a hamstring complaint; Mathoho took a knock to the head, while Hadebe hurt his ankle.
Chiefs' physiotherapist David Milner gave an update on their situation on the club's official website.
“'Rama' will take seven days to recover from the hamstring,” Milner said. “We will be monitoring him over the next few days.
“'Tower' had a blow to the head and thereafter he felt dizzy. He will be out for seven to 10 days.”
He added of Hadebe: “He is suspected to have aggravated his ankle. We will assess in the next four days.”
Hadebe was suspended in any event for this Sunday's Absa Premiership clash with relegation-threatened Platinum Stars at the same venue (15h00 kick-off).
Amakhosi trail log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns by 10 points with four league matches left for Steve Komphela's side, who also have a Nedbank Cup semi-final date with Free State Stars at Durban's Moses Mabhida Stadium on April 21.
