More Injury Woes For Bafana...

Stuart Baxter has more injury concerns ahead of tonight's Nelson Mandela Challenge and is expected to make numerous changes.

Baxter has spent the last few days preparing his side for the clash with Paraguay this evening, however, it appears that neither Siyanda Xulu nor Hlompho Kekana will be able to take part due to minor injuries. 

The Bafana coach has already explained that he will be making changes to the side as he looks to some of the younger players in the squad, although it remains to be seen exactly which players will be coming in.  

It does appear, though, that Xulu - who picked up a knock in training - and Kekana, following a niggle in the 1-1 draw with Nigeria, will not be featuring in the encounter, while the rest of the squad is believed to be fit and raring to go.

Baxter did say that he would try to manage to the players that have games coming up this weekend in the Telkom Knockout and later this month in the CAF Champions League/Confederation Cup, so there may be plenty of chopping and changing tonight as he looks to give several players a runout at Moses Mabhida Stadium.

The two sides will lock horns at 19h00 this evening.
