His season has been hampered by nagging injuries.

He once picked up a knee injury which also placed him on the sidelines for weeks at the start of the campaign.

Billiat’s injury comes as a huge set back for the already struggling DStv Premiership giants who are hoping to get their season back on track.

Chiefs are having a difficult season which has seen them seated fifth on the log standings with 28 points from 19 games, 27 points behind the log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.

The Arthur Zwane coached side has been affected by injuries massively in the ongoing campaign.

Apart from the former Zimbabwean international, Milner also revealed Nkosingiphile Ngcobo will be out for “three to four months owing to a torn thigh muscle which will require a quite extensive surgery on it.”

Added Milner, “Reeve Frosler had a fracture to his jaw which then had to get wired together. He’ll be out for between six and eight weeks.

“Dillan Solomons dislocated his left shoulder. It looks like he’ll be able to be treated conservatively and we expect him to be back in four to six weeks.

“Cole Alexander has come out of the moon boot. He has started running again and we are hoping to get him back into training soon and then we’ll progress from there.”
