Kaizer Chiefs suffer Castro blow ahead of crucial trip to Horoya AC

Kaizer Chiefs have announced Leonardo Castro has a broken nose and did not travel to Conakry for Saturday's Caf Champions League Group C final match against Horoya AC.

Castro sustained the injury on Tuesday in the Premier Soccer League 2-2 draw against Stellenbosch in a match he grabbed Chiefs' first goal.

The Colombian was injured while featuring in his first match upon returning from another spell on the sidelines where he missed five games.
