Chippa United coach Kosta Papic and goalkeeper Fatau Dauda are still waiting on their work permits ahead of the club's Premiership clash against University of Pretoria on Wednesday.
Serbian Papic and Ghana international Dauda were unable to participate in the side's opening two League games against Platinum Stars and SuperSport United.
Zimbabwean defender Eric Chipeta and Nigerian midfielder Ugonna Uzochukwu are also currently unavailable for the same reason.
“As I’m talking to you right now, I don’t know when it (Papic's work permit will be ready),” team manager Peter Koutroulis told KickOff.com.
High-profile signing Dauda penned a two-year deal with the Chilli Boys in July after barely featuring for Orlando Pirates in 2013/14.
Uzochukwu, formerly at Enugu Rangers, likewise joined the NFD champions last month, with Chipeta agreeing terms with the club in June.
