“Justice Chabalala is injured. He is struggling with an ankle injury at the moment. That’s why he hasn’t been playing,” a source confirmed to the Siya crew.

With both Chabalala and Abbubaker Mobara missing from Bucs’ line-ups in recent matches, Happy Jele has returned to Milutin Sredojevic’s side, with the experienced defender doing well.
