Maluleka, who missed the 3-1 Soweto Derby league loss to Orlando Pirates last Saturday, has an ankle problem, while Castro hurt his foot in the derby.

“George Maluleka is training in the gym under the watchful eye of the medical team.

“As a measure of precaution, Leonardo Castro was also training in the gym on Tuesday morning, as Leo felt a slight pain in his foot,” read a statement on the Chiefs website.

Meanwhile, according to the club statement, Kabelo Mahlasela is progressing well, doing physical drills pitch-side, and striker Emmanuel Letlotlo has joined his teammates in training.
