We are pinning our hopes on the return of our injured players - Middendorp

Kaizer Chiefs coach Ernst Middendorp says he is pinning his hopes on the return of many injured players. Goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune will return next month while other key players such as Eric Mathoho, Lebohang Manyama, Happy Mashiane, Nkosingiphile Ngcobo have all recovered from long term injuries. Middendorp also lamented the fact that most of his players such as Khama Billiat, Ramahlwe Mphahlele, Daniel Cardoso and James Kotei were suffering from fatigue due to not having a break during the off season.
