Kaizer Chiefs head coach Arthur Zwane has provided an early assessment of Reeve Frosler and Dillan Solomons' injuries from Sunday's DStv Premiership clash against Royal AM.
Chiefs returned to winning ways with a 2-0 win over Royal AM at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Sunday. The win was a first for the year for The Glamour Boys after losses against Sekhukhune United, AmaZulu and Mamelodi Sundowns.

However, a cause for concern for Zwane and the Amakhosi faithful was a potential double-setback after the defensive duo of Frosler and Solomons were both injured during the game.
on Sunday night, Zwane was able to give an early assessment of the players' injuries.
"The worrying factor from this match is losing two key players in the right-back position," Zwane told journalists.
"I'm not too sure [about Reeve Frosler] but he might have a broken cheek. I'm still to consult with the medical team. Also with Solomons, I think he has a shoulder dislocation. He might also be out for some time. As I said, we've been unfortunate when it comes to key players, losing them when we need them most.
"But we don't complain, it's part of the game, the nature of the game where sometimes you lose key players because the nature o the game is physical. But I'm proud of them, they went in there and gave their best."
Chiefs are already nursing injuries to Khama Billiat, Cole Alexander, Phathutshedzo Nange and Eric Mathoho, among others.
Amakhosi face TS Galaxy on Sunday at the Mbombela Stadium in Mpumalanga.
