As a consequence, Chiefs have now won three of their last four games and moved into sixth position on the log with 15 points after 10 matches.

Sunday’s opponents, Maritzburg sit on 11 points from 10 games but have just collected one in win their last six DStv Premiership games.

Baxter revealed that Lebogang Manyama is part of the match-day squad, while the game comes to early for Siyabonga Ngezana and Leonardo Castro, who are also back in training.

“We’ve got a few players back in full training. We’ve got Lebo (Manyama), Leo (Castro) and Siya (Ngezana) that have been out for quite a long time, now back in full training,” he told the club’s media department.

“Leo is travelling with us. We think he can play a part from the bench, possibly as an impact player.

“Lebo and Siya have got a little bit left, but we are pleased that they are back in with us.

“We’ve lost a few players, S’fiso Hlanti to injury with Njabulo Blom and Sbusiso Mabiliso both being unavailable.”
