Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela hopes Itumeleng Khune can recover in time for Tuesday’s clash against Cape Town City.

The Amakhosi goalkeeper sustained an injury during the penalty shootout loss to SuperSport United in the Nedbank Cup quarter final at the FNB Stadium on Saturday evening.

Chiefs are without the services of Brilliant Khuzwayo after the keeper underwent surgery, newly-signed keeper Bruce Bvuma could make his debut for the Glamour Boys if Khune is deemed unfit.

“I don’t know he felt badly on his hip. Apparently there is a bone bruised that we have to monitor and check. We don’t have much time, so that as well is the challenge. It is not just about getting the mind right but to get the body fresh and to keep them focused and they are at a better level of confidence. It is not going to be easy, but it is part of our job,” commented Komphela.

Chiefs will take on City at the Cape Town Stadium on Tuesday at 7.30pm.
