Sithole out for two weeks

Kaizer Chiefs youngster Justice Sithole strained a knee ligament in the Coca-Cola Cup semifinal victory against Santos on Sunday and he will be out of action for two weeks.

The youngster, who was in the starting line-up and lasted for 64 minutes before he was replaced by Phumlani Mkhize, was kicked while going for the ball and twisted his ankle. The doctors are giving him two weeks to recover.

Striker Daniel Matsau, who fractured a shinbone while in Iran, will visit a specialist in two weeks and a decision will be taken then about his training programme.

Matsau is now back at the gym but has not started running. He is only expected to start training with the rest of the squad in two months.

Meanwhile, coach Muhsin Ertugral goes into the league match against Manning Rangers with niggling worries arising from the injuries of Jabu Pule, Arthur Zwane and Nhlanhla Kubeka.

Team physiotherapist David Milner said the injuries were minor and that it would be up to the coach to decide whether to field them or not.

But Amakhosi have an important Mandela Cup final clash against Inter Luanda of Angola and the coach is likely to give the three a break.
