Three players for the Kaizer Chiefs are questionable for Saturday's encounter.
This weekend, Amakhosi will be back in action as they welcome league-leading Richards Bay to Moses Mabhida Stadium.
After last week's humiliating 4-0 loss to Mamelodi Sundowns, Chiefs will be eager to get back on the winning track.
After three games, the current Chiefs are in 12th place with three points.
Three of the club's most important players are in jeopardy of missing this weekend's game, which could deal a devastating blow to the team's chances of winning.
Since Amakhosi did not have a midweek match, the team had extra time to get ready for its next contest.
As a result of an injury sustained last week before the Sundowns game, Ashley Du Preez will not be available for the upcoming match.
The former Stellenbosch FC star missed Amakhosi's devastating defeat to the Brazilians last Saturday and will do the same for his current team this coming Saturday.
Besides Siyethemba Sithebe and George Matlou, two more players are doubtful for the club's weekend match due to injuries.
The Zimbabwean forward Khama Billiat is now dealing with the virus and is one of the players who is questionable for the match.
"Even though she'll be gone for a while, Ashley will be sorely missed. Even George has his doubts "Coach Arthur Zwane made the remark to the press.
The coach stated that they were not surprised by Sithebe's injury because he had only played three games in 10 days for the club this season and had not played competitive football in a long time.
Zwane also stated that the squad has no idea how Billiat will react to his flu and that they will have to wait until tomorrow to find out.
