PSL

Johannes and Hartog Being Monitored

Maritzburg United's medical staff are closely monitoring the progress of both Robyn Johannes and Ashley Hartog. The pair struggled with injury during the first half of the season and subsequently did not see a lot of game time as a result. Johannes has been battling with a thigh strain while Hartog is struggling to overcome a hamstring strain.

The Team of Choice's new coach, Steve Komphela, will no doubt want to see the pair get back to full fitness as their quality and experience is much needed by a club who struggled in the first half of the season.

In particular, Hartog's return to full fitness is thought to be prioritized as he could provide some much needed attacking options upfront. United's Ghanaian striker, Yakubu Mohammed, has struggled to adjust to life in the PSL and has just one league goal to his name in the current campaign. 

In addition, Johannes' presence at the back could boost the confidence of a back four that has conceded 11 goals in their last five matches played.

United's Team Manager, Quintin Jettoo, confirmed the pair were being monitored closely by the club's medical team and would be assessed about when they could be ready to return to action.

He said, "Our medical team are still assessing both Robyn and Ashley. Robyn has a thigh issue and Ashley has a hamstring concern. We're assessing them carefully to see when they can return."

On the plus side, there still appears to be plenty of time for the duo to fully recover and get back to full match fitness. United's next game is only in early February against the University of Pretoria.
