Kaizer Chiefs are bracing for a tough encounter in their final home match of the season against Polokwane City, with several key players sidelined. Coach Cavin Johnson confirmed that the team will be missing at least four important players for Saturday’s crucial DStv Premiership clash at FNB Stadium.

This match not only holds significance for the Chiefs’ league ambitions but also serves as a celebration of Itumeleng Khune’s illustrious 25-year career.

The iconic goalkeeper remains a beloved figure at the club and will be honored before the game.

Currently, Kaizer Chiefs and Polokwane City are neck and neck with 35 points each, battling for the coveted eighth spot in the DStv Premiership table.

With six other teams also in contention for this play-off qualifying position, securing a win is paramount for the Amakhosi to maintain control of their destiny.

However, the Chiefs’ quest for victory faces significant hurdles. Key players Edmilson Dove, Pule Mmodi, and Brandon Petersen are all suspended, adding to the squad’s woes.

In addition, Johnson revealed that four other players are unavailable due to injuries.

“We still have Mdantsane, Keegan, Reeve, and Solly out,” Johnson informed reporters, without elaborating on the specifics of their injuries. “I think those are the ones that come to mind right now.

There could be others,” he concluded.

The absence of these crucial players poses a substantial challenge for Johnson as he strategizes to secure the much-needed victory.

The team will need to rely on its depth and the resilience of its remaining squad members to overcome the adversity and clinch a vital win against Polokwane City.

The outcome of this match could significantly shape their fortunes as they aim to secure a spot in the play-offs and salvage their season.
