Chiefs dealt Nedbank selection blow

Nedbank Cup

Kaizer Chiefs are among nine PSL clubs that have been dealt selection blows ahead of this weekend's Nedbank Cup Last 32 fixtures.

Nedbank Cup action will take centre stage this weekend with a total of 14 fixtures scheduled between Thursday afternoon and Monday evening.

Chiefs will be up against GladAfrica Championship title contenders Richards Bay FC on Sunday evening (17h00), but will be without the services of key defender Siyabonga Ngezana.

This after the 23-year-old, who has sat out just five of his side's 22 matches so far this season, picked up a fourth yellow card of the campaign in their Soweto Derby defeat at the weekend.
