Chiefs issue injury update on Rama, Mathoho and Hadebe

Kaizer Chiefs will face Platinum Stars on Sunday without the services of defenders Ramahlwe ‘Rama’ Mphahlele, Erick ‘Tower’ Mathoho and Teenage Hadebe.

“We have a few injury issues to deal with after the Chippa United game. The match resulted in three players getting injuries,” team physiotherapist David Milner told the club’s website.

“Rama will take seven days to recover from the hamstring. We will be monitoring him over the next few days. Tower had a blow to the head and thereafter he felt dizzy. He will be out for seven to ten days.”

Hadebe, meanwhile, injured his ankle. “He is suspected to have aggravated his ankle. We will assess in the next four days,” Milner added.

Chiefs will host Rustenburg-based side Stars at the FNB Stadium in Jozi, with kick off set for 15h00.
