AmaZulu might be forced to finish the 2014/15 Absa Premiership season without Larry Horaeb who has injured himself once again in December.
Coach Steve Barker confirmed that the Namibian player will be out for about six months and that the six new signings he made during the break will feature in the squad for Tuesday’s game against Orlando Pirates.
“Horaeb has injured his leg once again and by the look of things he will be out for the next six months,” said Barker.
On the positive note Barker said he is grateful for the return of Marc Van Heerden who has missed most of the season.
“Most people are talking about the new players that we have signed but I am looking at the return of our injured players who missed some games at the end of last year.
“Marc is an experienced player and we most definitely need him in our squad. I think he is going to be very influential,” said Barker.
Another promising prospect is goalkeeper Siyabonga Mngoma who got injured against Maritzburg United. His chances are 50/50 that he might feature against Orlando Pirates.
“The medical team will confirm Mngoma’s injury as there is a 50/50 chance. Other than that Nhlanhla Shabalala is looking good, although he is not yet 100% recovered,” he said.
Unfortunately Tshepo Liphoko, who injured his toe during an international tour with the South Africa Under 20 national team, will miss the Bucs clash.Share
