The 2023/24 season is set to resume in mid-February. Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Sipho Chaine is expected to have made progress in his injury situation.
He has been out of competitive football action since October after picking up a knee injury against Cape Town Spurs in a Carling Knockout fixture. The 27-year-old was given between six and eight weeks to recover, but it has taken him longer than that, and Bucs finished last year without him featuring in any official matches.
With Richard Ofori appearing to struggle with loss of form as seen in the Africa Cup of Nations, where Ghana were knocked out in the group stages with him in goals in all three matches, the Soweto giants are hoping for Chaine to be ready for the league’s restart to compete for the number one jersey.
