Mashiane out for the season

“Happy’s toe fracture is taking longer than expected to heal,” reported Kaizer Chiefs physiotherapist Dave Milner. “The youngster requires a few more weeks to fully recover.”

With just over one month to go, this could mean that Happy Mashiane’s 2018/2019 season is over.

The left-back joins Itumeleng Khune and Nkosingiphile Ngcobo, who are also ruled out for the rest of the season due to injury.

The medical team also reports that the recovery progress of Lebogang Manyama and Mulomowandau Mathoho is going well.

“They are both training,” explained Miller. “The one thing left for the two is to get back to match fitness. We are monitoring their progression towards match fitness. It will take a bit of time, but we are happy with their progress.”

Khama Billiat missed the match against Baroka FC last weekend.

“Khama has started training again,” confirmed Milner. “We will assess how he responds in training, before making a decision on his availability for selection on the weekend.”
