Baxter Gives Insights Into Chiefs Line-Up

Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter has given some insight into his starting XI ahead of their clash against Marumo Gallants, revealing another player who can’t start due to an injury.

The Englishman has come under pressure after his side started with just four points from four games into the new season, in particular after the heavy 4-1 defeat to Royal AM.

Chiefs have given an injury update earlier, stating that Samir Nurković, Phathutshedzo Nange and Kgaogelo Sekgota have joined the club’s long-term absentees on the sidelines.

Baxter now also confirmed that Bernard Parker won’t be able to start and he will have to make some changes to his attack and midfield.

“Bernard Parker is out. He can make the bench, but he’s out. He’s had a broken bone in his hand,” he told the club’s media department.

“We’ve just taken the cast off and he’s in a brace. Bernard is fit, but he’s still in a little bit of pain. He can give us something if needed. 

“The attacking unit will be without Samir (Nurković). Samir is injured, he’s got to have an operation (to repair a damaged meniscus), so we will reshuffle the attacking unit. 

“(Phatutshedzo) Nange is away from midfield, he’s injured (adductor muscle). We will need to also reshuffle the midfield area. 

“That may mean we bring in Reeve Frosler and shuffle up in that way. There are a few changes, maybe in personnel and tweaking the shape a little bit.”

Chiefs face Gallants at 17:00 at the Peter Mokaba Stadium today.
