AmaZulu coach Craig Rosslee says goalkeeper Tapuwa Kapini and midfielder Sadney Urikhob will not be rushed back from their respective injuries.
Kapini has not featured for Usuthu since sustaining a neck injury during an Absa Premiership clash against Mamelodi Sundowns on March 9 and Rosslee says his progress is being monitored.
“At the moment it’s not good for him (Kapini) because we have to see what the situation is with his neck after the two weeks,” said Rosslee.
“If it’s more serious than anticipated then he will be out for quite some time and might need an operation.”
Urikhob has resumed training after recovering from a foot injury but Rosslee says it may take some time before we see him back in competitive action.
“Sadney has broken his foot on two occasions now and in a scenario like this you can’t rush a player back,’ he added.
“We have to be precautious because we can do a lot of damage if we try to bring him back quicker than we need to.
“The most important thing is that he finishes full training session with the team and then we’ll slowly bring him back with the friendly games.
“That’s the only way to make sure that the player heals properly.”
The injured players will have a bit more time to recuperate before Usuthu play their next Absa Premiership game against Platinum Stars at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium next Wednesday, April 16.Share
