Chiefs hopeful of Manyama and Parker

Kaizer Chiefs are confident that both Lebogang Manyama and Bernard Parker will be fit for Saturday's Telkom Knockout semi-final against Orlando Pirates.
 
Manyama was injured in a car accident in October while Parker has been sidelined in recent weeks with an injury.
 
Amakhosi spokesman Vina Maphosa was reported in the Citizen as saying: "We only do injury updates on Tuesdays but I can confirm Manyama has started training. 
 
"Even if you were asking about the fittest player in the team right now I would not confirm nor deny their availability at this time as that we do on Thursdays."
 
Meanwhile, Chiefs coach Giovanni Solinas was hopeful over the pair, adding: "I hope we can recover these players. 
 
"It is very important, because that will give us more options in the starting line-up and more options also on the bench."
 
And on Wiseman Meyiwa, who also in car accident, a club statement read: "Wiseman Meyiwa is out of ICU. He is stable under the care of a specialist’s supervision. The club appreciates all the messages of support and prayers for Meyiwa."
