Kennedy Mweene took his place and Downs went on to beat CR Belouizdad 5-1 to go top of Group B, ahead of TP Mazembe and Al Hilal.

This was the rescheduled match after Belouizdad could not secure a venue in Algeria late last month – the fixture was eventually played in Tanzania over the weekend.

“We don’t think it is a serious injury because it is just a bruise. They stepped on him it’s not like he twisted an ankle or anything like that,” Mngqithi told the media. 

“So we are hopeful that we will have some days before the next match and he will be able to help us. When I saw him walking on the pitch after the game I felt a little bit better, so we are hopeful he will be back soon. One must mention that Kennedy came in with his experience and plugged the hole, it never looked like we were shaky when he got in.”   

Downs return home to prepare for another Champions League clash, this time at the Lucas Moripe Stadium against Mazembe on Saturday.
