AmaZulu, who are preparing for a clash with Telkom Knockout finalists in Bloemfontein Celtic, have received a boost with the availability of their captain.
AmaZulu will host Celtic in an Absa Premiership game at King Zwelithini Stadium next Wednesday. Usuthu confirmed that the team’s captain Tapelo Nyongo has returned to training, after recovering from an injury.
“Yes, I have been declared fit by the doctor and I started training with my teammates on Monday. For now, I am focusing on regaining my full fitness because I was out for months due to my injury.
“I will only start thinking about our game against Bloemfontein Celtic next week. The most important thing for me at the moment is to push myself – so that I can be physically ready for the match.
"We will have a chance to watch them play in the final against Bidvest Wits since the game will be played in Durban. We will study them and see if we can identify their weaknesses. Then we will look to capitalise on their weaknesses next week at home,” Nyongo told AmaZulu’s official website.
The 22-year-old has been out for Cavin Johnson’s side since picking the injury against Platinum Stars in September.
