AmaZulu captain Tapelo Nyongo has given Usuthu a major fitness boost by returning to training following a kidney injury.

The defender sustained the injury after colliding with Platinum Stars defender Vuyo Mere during an Absa Premiership match which ended in a 1-1 draw last September.

Nyongo, who has made six league appearances for Usuthu this season, stated that he is focused on regaining his full fitness.

“Yes, I have been declared fit by the doctor and I started training with my teammates on Monday,” Nyongo told AmaZulufc.net.

“For now I am focusing on regaining my full fitness because I was out for months due to my injury.

AmaZulu are scheduled to host Bloemfontein Celtic in an Absa Premiership match at the King Zwelithini Stadium on Wednesday, 6 December 2017. Kick-off is at 19h30.

“I will only start thinking of our game against Bloemfontein Celtic next week,” the 22–year-old continued.

“The most important thing for me at the moment is to push myself – so that I can be physically ready for the match.

Celtic are set to take on Bidvest Wits in the 2017 Telkom Knockout Cup final at the Princess Magogo Stadium in Durban this Saturday.

“We will have a chance to watch them play in the final against Bidvest Wits since the game will be played in Durban,” Nyongo added.

“We will study them and see if we can identify their weaknesses. Then we will look to capitalize on their weaknesses next week at home.”
