“Dzuka (Dzvukamanja) comes back now, maybe on Saturday. Lorch comes back, maybe on Saturday, (and) Monare comes back on Saturday. We have more options for the game against Chippa. And Zungu comes back and then we have more options for the 20-man squad and then we have to see which is the best player for Chippa,” said Zinnbauer.
