Amakhosi’s medical team has been hard at work mending injuries to no less than seven players. The squad has recently been affected by an assortment of injuries to several players giving Steve Komphela limited options in his selection.
Centre-back Teenage Hadebe, who is yet to make his debut in the Gold & Black jersey, is recovering from an ankle injury. The Zimbabwean has started jogging though and should start light training in about two weeks.
Defender Lorenzo Gordinho is recovering from broken ribs and will still be three weeks on the sidelines before resuming training.
Gustavo Páez’s scintillating form, meanwhile, was brought to an abrupt end when he suffered an ankle injury during Kaizer Chiefs’ encounter with Baroka FC a fortnight ago. The Venezuelan striker will be in a protective boot for another three weeks before resuming his rehabilitation to full fitness.
Full-back Kgotso Moleko suffered a knee ligament in the Sparta Macufe Cup last weekend. Moleko will be in a brace and will be out for six to eight weeks.
