KAIZER Chiefs striker Kingston Nkhatha could be out nursing his thigh injury for a few weeks, after picking up the injury in the Carling Black Label Cup game.
Amakhosi were defeated 6-5 on penalty shootouts by their arch-rivals Orlando Pirates at the FNB Stadium on Saturday.
The club’s head coach Stuart Baxter stated that it was hard to predict the exact period the 28-year-old striker would be spending on the sidelines.
“Kingston took a knock, it’s hard to tell how long he will be out. It’s touch and go. He could be out for five days, or it could be five weeks. We will see,” Baxter said to the media after the match.
The Zimbabwe international striker injured his thigh after clattering against Pirates goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa, as the two Soweto giants drew 0-0 in regulation time.
Amakhosi striker Bernard Parker is currently recovering from an ankle injury, that sidelined the 28-year-old forward for ten weeks. 
Chiefs’ next official match is against Mpumalanga Black Aces in an MTN 8 Cup quarter-final encounter on Sunday the 3rd of August.Advertisement
