Billiat hints at return from injury ahead of Soweto Derby

Kaizer Chiefs forward Khama Billiat has hinted he could be fit to feature in his first Soweto Derby after missing last weekend’s action with a back injury.

The 28-year-old winger Billiat has been a doubt in the build-up to the clash against rivals Orlando Pirates on Saturday.

In an interview with the club’s website, Billiat said: “I’ve been in South Africa for several years and watched the Soweto Derby on television but have never attended the game.

“It’s a huge privilege to be a part of this spectacle for the first time and I am looking forward to the experience as a player – especially in Kaizer Chiefs colours.

“I know the atmosphere will be electric and we have to live up to the expectations of the Amakhosi supporters.”

Billiat joined Amakhosi during the off-season from Mamelodi Sundowns and if he is declared fit, he is expected to start on Saturday.
