Chiefs Give Khune & Akpeyi Updates
Kaizer Chiefs have confirmed that Itumeleng Khune and Daniel Akpeyi returned to training ahead of Wednesday’s derby against Swallows FC, while Njabulo Blom is suspended.
The Glamour Boys will face Swallows FC in the Soweto derby later today, when they will aim to return to winning ways in order to prevent being drawn into the relegation battle.
Swallows enter the game in fifth place on the log, 11 points ahead their Soweto rivals, while Chiefs only sit in 10th position.
Chiefs, though, confirmed some good news, saying that Khune and Akpeyi both returned to training, while Khama Billiat, Eric Mathoho and Lebohang Lesako are all still “recovering from an assortment of injuries.
The latter trio will join suspended Njabulo Blom on the sidelines.
Gavin Hunt’s men enter the game on a horrible run, having won just two of their last 14 DStv Premiership games.
As a consequence, they only sit five points above the relegation-playoff spot and could be sucked into the relegation battle, if they lose to Swallows.
