Bevan Fransman has returned to training for Kaizer Chiefs after missing the start of the Castle Premiership season through injury.
The defender sustained a shin injury during the Amakhosi's clash with Dynamos, which sidelined the SA junior international for 10 days.
Meanwhile, midfielder David Mathebula has been rated doubtful for the Black Leopards SAA Supa 8 clash with a back problem, but defender Sphiwe Mkhonza has been declared fit to play after recovering from concussion.
The Chiefs players will be raring to go after receiving a well-deserved week-long break.
"This (the lay-off) should not be a major setback despite the fact that the break does take you out of your rhythm, but I sure the technical staff will be equal to the task," Amakhosi chairman Kaizer Motaung told the club's website.
However, Black Leopards will be looking to avenge their defeat to Chiefs in the Telkom Charity Cup and prove that they are a team to be reckoned with this season.
