Erick ‘Tower’ Mathoho is training with the squad again and is raring to go when the Absa Premiership resumes after the festive break. The lanky defender missed the last two matches, including the Telkom Knockout cup final, due to an ankle injury.
Other good news from the Amakhosi camp is that goalkeeper Itumeleng ‘Spiderkid’ Khune has returned to full training after recovering from the knee injury he suffered in October just before the Telkom Knockout semifinal against Orlando Pirates.
Meanwhile, attacker Bernard ‘Die Hond’ Parker is in a rehabilitation process and should be able to resume full training when the team gets together again in the New Year. Parker got injured during the Cape of Love & Peace clash against Bidvest Wits.
This will be welcome news to the Kaizer Chiefs faithful ahead of the tantalising league fixture at home at the FNB Stadium against league log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns on Saturday, 9 January 2016 (kick-off is at 20:15).
