Billiat and Shabba fit to face Sundowns

Khama Billiat and Siphiwe Tshabalala

Kaizer Chiefs have reportedly been handed a boost with the news that Khama Billiat and Siphiwe Tshabalala are fit to face Mamelodi Sundowns.



Amakhosi take on the Brazilians in the opening game of the 2018/19 Premiership campaign on Saturday with the clash set to take place at Loftus Versfeld.

The pair were taken off injured in the defeat to Cape Town City during the Mpumalanga Cultural Experience Cup last weekend, although it since seems this was for precautionary measures.

As such, Soccer Laduma report that both Billiat and Tshabalala have participated in full training under the watchful eye of new coach Giovanni Solinas, and are in contention to face Sundowns this weekend.

With that said, George Maluleka appears set to miss out on the contest as the midfielder was recently spotted in a moon boot with an undisclosed injury concern.

However, apart from the anticipated absence of Maluleka, who was a regular for the club last term, Chiefs boast virtually a clean bill of health.
