Billiat returns to Chiefs training ahead of Arrows match

Khama Billiat

Former Zimbabwe international midfielder Khama Billiat has resumed training at his South African club Kaizer Chiefs after recovering from an injury he sustained in the Soweto Derby two weeks ago.

Billiat has been on the sidelines in recent weeks after picking a hamstring injury but is now expected to make a return to action ahead of the league match against Golden Arrows at FNB Stadium on Saturday.

The 31-year-old winger took part in Wednesday’s session at the Kaizer Chiefs Village in Naturena, Johannesburg and is expected to be available for selection for the upcoming game.

After spending most of last season on the sidelines due to injuries, Billiat has featured consistently for Chiefs this team, making 17 league appearances, missing just two games in the season.

The return to full fitness has resulted in a return to good form for the Zimbabwean star. In 17 league appearances, this season Billiat has had a hand in 12 goals for Chiefs, making 6 assists and scoring six goals.

In terms of goal contributions, this is his best campaign as a Chiefs player since joining the club in 2018-19.

His return ahead of the game against Golden Arrows is a massive boost for Amakhosi, who still believe that the club has a shot at catching Premiership leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.

With Billiat in attack, Chiefs can cause loads of problems for an Arrows side which has the fourth worst defensive record in the league this season.

Arrows have conceded 25 goals in 20 matches, with only Baroka FC, Chippa United and TS Galaxy letting in more than the Durban-based side.
