Khune’s poser for Baxter


Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter admits he has a situation to manage in his goalkeeping department now that Itumeleng Khune is 100% fit and raring to go.

Khune, who sat on the bench for Chiefs just before the Africa Cup of Nations after returning from a five-month ankle injury, is still not match fit.

But Baxter admitted it would be difficult keeping the Amakhosi captain out of his starting lineup, even though Reyaad Pieterse and, especially Brilliant Khuzwayo, had deputised superbly for the Bafana Bafana goalkeeper.

Chiefs, on a remarkable unbeaten 18-match run and 15 points clear on the log, resume their Absa Premier Soccer League campaign against Bloemfontein Celtic in Bloemfontein on Wednesday.
