Chippa United have confirmed three covid-19 positive cases ahead of their DStv Premiership match against SuperSport United on Wednesday.
The ‘Chilli Boys’ will be without goalkeepers Mlu Mazibuko and Ismail Watenga, as well as assistant coach Siya Gwambi when they travel to Lucas Moripe Stadium for the clash against ‘Matsatsantsa’.
“The Chilli Boys do report Covid-19 cases ahead of our fixture today. This is after our regular, routine tests conducted earlier this week,” the club said in a statement released an hour before kickoff.
“After sterling performances with the DSTV Diski Challenge team, 20-year-old PE-born youngster Kwanele Nkabi is promoted to the senior team.
“He is among the list of substitutes as the reserve keeper,” read the statement.
The match will start at 17:00 and will see coach Dan Malesela taking charge of the team in his fourth stint.
