Bafana Update: Duo Return To Training, Baxter At Full Strength

Stuart Baxter now has a full Bafana Bafana contingent at his disposal as he prepares to face Nigeria in an African Cup of Nations qualifier this weekend.
 
Baxter oversaw two sessions today as he continued to mull over who will be starting against the Super Eagles on Saturday, however he was two men short in the morning as Tokelo Rantie and Rivaldo Coetzee trained separately due to injuries.
However, both Rantie and Coetzee joined the rest of the team for today’s afternoon session, and are now expected to take part in tomorrow’s training prior to their departure for Uyo.
 
There were several injury concerns earlier this week as the likes of Rantie, Coetzee, Andile Jali, Aubrey Ngoma, Lebogang Manyama and others all battled with niggles, although those concerns now seem to have been placated.
 
Having named Thulani Hlatshwayo as his captain, ‘Tyson’ is currently the only player known to be starting in this weekend’s important AFCON 2019 qualifier, with several players all looking to stake a claim for a starting berth in the final few sessions before the encounter.
 
Rantie’s recovery will be a big boost to Baxter given his performance in the 2-2 draw with Nigeria back in 2014, and he will no doubt be hoping to make a similar impact in Uyo this weekend
