Kaizer Chiefs Football Club is set to be without some of the players ahead of the season opener this weekend.
Heading into the new season, Kaizer Chiefs coaching staff is sweating over the fitness of several players.
Ranga Chivaviro, Keagan Dolly, Ashley Du Preez, and Edmilson Dove are all facing the race to be fit ahead of Chippa United’s encounter.
The latter pulled a groin during Chiefs’ pre-season match against Yanga in Tanzania last month.
Despite the club keeping his availability for the opening match a secret, Dove is likely not to feature.
