PSL returns to full action
In the biggest clash this weekend, Kaizer Chiefs take on Mamelodi Sundowns.
CAPE TOWN - Local soccer fans soccer will be hoping the PSL gets underway tomorrow with a mouthwatering clash between Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns.
Amakhosi captain Itumeleng Khune could make a return after taking part in full training earlier this week. This after a heel injury kept him on the sidelines since September.
A decision on the skipper's inclusion is expected on Friday.
Chiefs spokesperson Vina Maphosa says Khune is in full training, which means he can get a place in the team.
"The likelihood and the availability of selection is determined at the last training session, which will be on Friday afternoon. At this stage if he is in full training, it means that he is in the squad, meaning that he has one leg in the team."
Sundowns meanwhile will want to flex their muscles against Chiefs after what has been an indifferent season so far.
The Brazilians have played 10 games so far this season.
The reigning PSL champions have won four matches, drawn two and lost two.
