KAIZER Chiefs have confirmed that Zimbabwean international striker Kingston Nkhatha is good and ready to go after an injury scare.

The Zimbabwean striker got a knock on his leg after colliding with Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa during the Carling Black Label Cup clash on Saturday, and he was expected to be out for a lengthy period.

However, it turns out it was just a ‘dead leg’ according to Chiefs’ medical team, and Nkhatha may even be available for Sunday’s MTN8 quarter-final clash against Mpumalanga Black Aces at FNB Stadium.

Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter had raised concern about the number of injuries his side has picked up.

“The main concern for me is the injuries we have,” Baxter said after Nkatha limped off on 24 minutes after picking up an injury.

“We've picked a couple of injuries and that's not very good based on the fact that we’ve already got ‘Shabba’ out and we don't know the situation with Knowledge Musona.

“That will be my main concern. Kingston [Nkatha] got a knock on his thigh and it was bleeding. It is difficult to know [the extent of the injury].

“There are two different types of bleeding, one within the muscle and one around the muscle and it is difficult to tell when it is swollen.

“The difference between those two is that one can last for seven days, and the other for five weeks. At this moment we don't know [exactly].”

However, Nkatha has according to Kaizer Chiefs recovered and could be thrown in on Sunday.
