Stuart Baxter has named his squad for the vital Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Nigeria this month as he dealt with a number of injury blows.
Baxter, who knows a victory will secure their spot at the finals in 2019, had to widen his search for players due to several injury problems, with the likes of Bongani Zungu, Keagan Dolly, Dean Furman, Kamohelo Mokotjo, Bradley Grobler and more all out of action.
Bafana will host Nigeria at the FNB Stadium on Saturday 17th of November as second place in Group E takes on the team sitting pretty at the top, with a spot in Cameroon up for grabs.
