However, the Serbian marksman is NOT 100 percent fit, and while he is back on the pitch with his Chiefs teammates, Nurkovic may not feature just yet.

Nurkovic has been training with the Amakhosi first team for a few weeks now but the technical team may decide keep him out to avoid aggravating his knee injury.

With Mamelodi Sundowns already running away with the league title, Stuart Baxter may opt to go all out in the Nedbank Cup to at least salvage the current season.

But that may exclude Nurkovic with Leonardo Castro the possible reliable striker Baxter may go for against TS Galaxy on Saturday night.

Kick-off at FNB Stadium is scheduled for 18:00.

KAIZER CHIEFS RECEIVE MASSIVE NURKOVIC BOOST BUT STRIKER NOT 100 PERCENT

“I’m really happy to finally be back with the boys on the field. We’re working hard to prepare for the next match… Nedbank Cup [against TS Galaxy]. I think we are ready,” Nurkovic told the Chiefs media team.

“I am still working hard to get in the best possible shape and where I used to be, and that’s requiring a lot of work but, yeah, I will be there soon.

“Like I said, I am really happy to finally be back. It was… I’d say, painful watching all these games from the sidelines, on the TV, and really miss supporters at the stadium and all that stuff.

“So, I can’t wait to be back. I can’t wait to have our faithful Amakhosi family back at the stadium, on the stands and everything will be alright,” added Nurkovic.
