Usuthu injury update ahead of Chiefs clash

Augustine Kwem of AmaZulu FC

AmaZulu FC will be without several players when they take on Kaizer Chiefs in an MTN8 semi-final first-leg match on Sunday.

Strikers Augustine Chidi Kwem and Bonginkosi Ntuli will miss the game as Usuthu look to secure a victory over Amakhosi at the FNB Stadium.


While attacking midfielder Siphesihle Maduna has a 50/50 chance of featuring against the Soweto giants according to AmaZulu head coach Brandon Truter.

β€œWe still have Kwem suspended,” Truter said with the Nigerian striker having been red-carded in a game against Chippa United on September 10.

“We still have Ntuli out with a long-term injury, Maduna is still a 50/50 chance that he will play.”

However, there is some positive news for Usuthu as Abubaker Mobara and Rally Bwalya are available for selection.

β€œBut at the same time we welcomed back Mobara, we welcomed back Rally Bwalya,” the Cape Town-born tactician added.

The match between AmaZulu and Chiefs will kick-off at 3:30 pm CAT.
