With the club considering letting him go. Both players returned to action recently with Nurkovic earning his first start in over 6 months against Baroka FC.

However, he did not pose much of a threat. It is his first game back after a long-term injury layoff but he has couple of months to make an impact or he could see the door. Chiefs need a striker that is capable of bagging double-figures every season if they are to compete in the PSL and local competitions.

Castro is finally back in the picture with Amakhosi fans hoping to see CBD in action at Chiefs.

So far, Castro has lacked the edge he had at Mamelodi Sundowns but he has also just returned after facing months on the sidelines. He also has 2-3 months to prove his worth or he could be sold.

The remaining matches in March and April will determine who stays at the club. Meaning, this Soweto derby on Saturday could very well be their last.

At the moment, both players could leave Naturena in June but one could stay if he improves his form drastically.
