Chiefs are currently in eighth position on the DStv Premiership table, and have two games left to secure their place in next season’s MTN 8 competition.

With games against Polokwane City and Cape Town Spurs to come, Sports Brief looks at five players the club could be without for the remaining games.

5 Amakhosi players absent for upcoming fixture

Edmilson Dove

Dove has been one of Chiefs’ more underrated players since joining in 2022.

The Mozambiquan international has already made over 100 appearances for the Amakhosi and is set to earn a contract extension.

As noted by The Citizen, his current deal expires this season, but the club are open to extending it.

Dove will miss the next game after picking up a red card against TS Galaxy.

Brandon Petersen

Petersen joined the club in 2021 but has found it a bit of a struggle to keep the number one jersey.

Bruce Bvuma is currently the team’s first choice, while Petersen has played in only eight games this season.

The 29-year-old has made headlines from the bench, first shouting at Cavin Johnson after losing to Orlando Pirates, GOAL reported, and then being shown a red card while on the bench against TS Galaxy.

As a result, he will miss the next game.

Keagan Dolly

The former Mamelodi Sundowns star joined Chiefs in 2021, saying that he did so to win trophies.

That hasn’t happened, and with his contract set to expire at the end of the season, it is unlikely that it will happen in the future.

Injuries have marred his final season with the side, and the 31-year-old has not played for the side since the beginning of March.

Dolly is expected to miss the remaining two games, but the club are working on extending his contract.

Pule Mmodi

Mmodi has become a regular in the Chiefs squad since joining from Lamontville Golden Arrows.

The winger has played 31 games in all competitions this season, scoring four goals and assisting four.

After receiving his fourth yellow card of the season, he will be unavailable for the game against Polokwane City.

Tebogo Potsane

Potsane, another of the Chiefs’ new signings, was brought in from Royal AM ahead of the 2023/24 season.

An injury after just 11 appearances dampened his progress, and he has not played for the team since late 2023.

Potsane was in a race to be fit for the remaining games in the DStv Premiership, but as FAR Post noted, he has been ruled out for the rest of the season.

Dolly among Chiefs’ big earners

Sports Brief previously reported that Dolly was Kaizer Chiefs highest-paid player.

The former Mamelodi Sundowns star reportedly earns around R1.4 million a month.

The figure is almost a million more than veteran keeper, Itumeleng Khune, raked in.
