KAIZER CHIEFS right back Tlou "Spanner" Molekwane returns to action today after being sidelined by a shoulder injury.

Molekwane, who has represented the Under17 national team, Amajita and Under23s, dislocated his right shoulder during the Peter Mokaba Cup in Polokwane three weeks ago.

"The injury has healed," he said yesterday. "Our medical personnel has given me the go ahead to start training with the rest of the first team.

Meanwhile, Chiefs chairman Kaizer Motaung is keeping his fingers crossed for Amakhosi to qualify for the Champions League.

"One just hopes that we won't slide down but remain with the leading pack to gain a chance to qualify for the African Champions League in the future," said Motaung adding that their performance (poor start to the season) and the record number of goals they conceded, pointed to a grave challenge in their defence.

"The often unwelcome goal-drought also took its toll on us, besides competing in a compacted league season. "Despite these adversities, I believe we can still do the best we can in the remaining fixtures and the upcoming Telkom Cup and the Nedbank Cup, to at least claim some silverware."
