Kaizer Chiefs have provided an update on Ramahlwe Mphahlele, Erick Mathoho, Teenage Hadebe, Gustavo Paez, Emmanuel Letlotlo and Kabelo Mahlasela ahead of their Nedbank Cup semi-final.
The sextet have been nursing knocks on the sidelines.
“Ramahlwe Mphahlela has recovered from the hamstring injury and will undergo a final fitness test this week," Chiefs physiotherapist Dave Milner told the club's website.
“Erick Mathoho is progressing well after the head injury sustained last week against Chippa United. We are monitoring him and will have an update before the trip to Durban.
“Gustavo Páez has joined the team training after suffering a calf muscle strain two weeks ago.
“Teenage Hadebe is under assessment from an ankle injury sustained against Chippa United. He is doing well and we hope he will recover in time for the Nedbank Cup semifinal this weekend.” The Zimbabwean served a one-match suspension in the recent 1-0 league win over Platinum Stars.
“Emmanuel Letlotlo is involved in full training and is currently loading to get match fit.”
Letlotlo is yet to play this season due to a knee injury.
January signing Kabelo Mahlasela is also still making his way back from knee surgery.
Amakhosi will battle Free State Stars at Durban's Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday (20h15).
