Soweto giants Kaizer Chiefs have received a much-needed injury boost ahead of their next DStv Premiership match.
CHIEFS HAVE STRUGGLED IN FRONT OF GOAL
The club, who are down in 13th-place in the 16-team league, confirmed on Monday that star striker Samir Nurkovic will return to training this week.
Whether the Serbian is declared fit to play in Wednesday’s clash against Black Leopards remains to be seen however.
Gavin Hunt’s men have struggled desperately in front of goal in their five matches this season.
Their ‘goals scored’ tally currently stands at a measly three – one of which was an own goal.
Chiefs’ match against Black Leopards was originally scheduled for Tuesday, but was moved back by 24 hours to give Amakhosi more time to prepare after their clash last weekend in the CAF Champions League was also delayed by a day from Friday to Saturday.
Chiefs confirmed on their social media pages that Nurkovic, who was the PSL’s leading scorer last season, will be “monitored” and that “further updates would follow”.
Kick-off at the FNB Stadium on Wednesday is at 19:30.
