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.

“We 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.

“But 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.
