CHIPPA United’s leading goal-scorer David Zulu is facing a race against time to be fit for the PSL game against Kaizer Chiefs in Polokwane on Saturday.
Zulu, 28, who is expected to join Soweto giants Chiefs during the January transfer window, is battling with a recurring knee which came to the fore last week and forced him to miss the Polokwane City game.
The Chilli Boys suffered their first Premiership loss this season under now full-time coach Roger Sikhakhane when they were crushed 3-1 by their former mentor Kostadin Papic’s side, Polokwane, on Saturday.
Zulu, who finished last season as top scorer in the National First Division with 16 goals, has been impressive for United, scoring five league goals in 13 starts in all competitions this season.
“I still feel pains but I’ll be consulting my doctor [yesterday] and I’m hoping to hear good news. I feel bad when I’m missing games due to injuries.
“I hate the fact that I couldn’t be part of the team when they lost in Polokwane. Maybe my contribution could have made a difference,” Zulu said.
Zulu said he hoped to be ready to play against Chiefs and was pushing himself to recover by the end of the week. – Mthetho Ndoni
