Billiat missed Chiefs’ Telkom Knockout semifinal clash against Maritzburg United last weekend, which Amakhosi lost 2-1.

Middendorp said Billiat trained with the team on Tuesday and he was looking “better”.

“We have been observing Khama since his return from national duty… He trained yesterday and looked better than last week. We will monitor him before making a decision on his fitness,” Middendorp told the Chiefs website.

The clash is set to take place at Cape Town Stadium this evening at 7.30pm.
