Mamelodi Sundowns’ coach, Rulani Mokwena admitted that the team is sweating about injuries to two of their key players.

Speaking ahead of Sunday’s clash, Mokwena revealed that the technical team still has concerns regarding Andile Jali, who pulled a hamstring in their previous clash against Cape Town City early this month.

“We are sweating and we are a bit concerned about some of the players. We are concerned about AJ (Andile Jali), he hasn’t trained with us but we are getting good feedback from the doctors so we have to see on AJ and assess (him) leading up to the game,” Mokwena told the media.

In addition, Kermit Erasmus also picked up an injury on national team duty.

“And Kermit when he comes back from Bafana we will have to assess because, with a muscular injury and all these niggles, studies always show that a niggle always relates to an injury 75% of the time so it is important that we have to treat that as a serious precaution and we will get our medical department to have a look and see because Kermit is very important to us.”

“We also have to check the players that have come back, Peter (Shalulile), they have been all over Africa and Brian Onyango, we have to check Thapelo (Morena) and Lyle (Lakay) and see where they are in terms of conditioning and recovery and readiness for the match and that is going to be the most important thing to integrate them. We are sweating but it is a good sweat because w have a very good squad and enough depth.”
