BREAKING NEWS: KAIZER CHIEFS LEGEND SET TO COACH AMAKHOSI
KAIZER CHIEFS MIRACLE RECOVERY
Njabulo Ngcobo could not walk just a couple of days ago after sustaining a severe 12-inch burn.

Now, just a week later, not only can he walk but he is ready to run and play at the highest level. Returning to training according to KickOff. He has gone from hardly being able to walk to being fully fit and able to run. To be that brick wall on defense for Amakhosi.

NGCOBO RETURNS ALONGSIDE TWO INTERNATIONALS
Ngcobo returns alongside Leonardo Castro, Samir Nurkovic who have been out for several months. All three men will be fit for the Soweto derby with each man possibly getting a run against Baroka FC later today.
For Baxter, this truly feels like a miracle because his job is hanging on a thread.
So, the return of two internationals as well as a veteran PSL star and Bafana Bafana player couldn’t have come at a better time. There was a point where it seemed Nurkovic would leave Naturena and now we could see him on the pitch today.
Chiefs simply have to win today if they are to maintain their hopes of qualifying for the CAF Champions League next season.
Amakhosi supporters are desperate for a win having not won a match since December last year. This is also there only chance to build momentum and gain confidence ahead of the Soweto derby next weekend.
Baxter will be using this match to help his returning players get game time and to test combinations. He needs to build the strongest possible side to take on Orlando Pirates next week.
The Soweto derby will take place at the Orlando Stadium on 5 March 2022.
