Kaizer Chiefs now have a glimmer of hope with some of their players returning to full fitness after having faced a challenging start to the season due to a series of unfortunate injuries.
However, there is good news on the horizon, as three key players are set to return to contention just in time for their upcoming match against Royal AM on September 16th.
This development is expected to provide a much-needed boost for the club, which has been grappling with several injury setbacks so far.
KAIZER CHIEFS STRUGGLE WITH INJURIES
Amakhosi have had their fair share of injury woes this season, with notable players like Edmilson Dove, Keegan Dolly, Bontle Molefe, and Ranga Chivario being sidelined.
These absences have undoubtedly impacted the team’s performance and hindered their progress on the field.
INJURED PLAYERS ROAD TO RECOVERY
During the recent international break, Kaizer Chiefs seized the opportunity to give playing time to some of their injured players who were slowly returning to full fitness.
In a friendly match against Tuks on September 8, the team played to a 2-2 draw, providing valuable minutes for those on the road to recovery.
The trio of Keegan Dolly, Edmilson Dove, and Bontle Molefe is looking promising as they near a return to playing form for the Gauteng side.
Keegan Dolly, who suffered an anterior cruciate ligament tear—an injury that typically requires six to nine months of recovery time—was included in the friendly game against Tuks.
His presence on the field is expected to significantly bolster the Kaizer Chiefs’ chances of success this season.
Edmilson Dove was on the bench for Mozambique where they won 3-2 against Benin in the AFCON Qualifiers on Saturday 9 September 2023.
