In their attempt to move away from relegation zone, and to potentially move up to mix with the promotion hopefuls at the top half of the log in the second half of the season, Jomo Cosmos have reunited with their former player.
Following spells at four different clubs in Bidvest Wits, Free State Stars, Maritzburg United and Mbombela United since leaving Cosmos in 2009, Themba Shabalala has returned to Ezenkosi after a long absence from the game due to injury.
The defender has been without a club since parting ways with Mbombela in January last year. The 32-year-old centre-back has re-joined his mentor Jomo Sono to assist him and the team in attempting to move away from danger in GladAfrica Championship log.
Cosmos, who were relegated from the Absa Premiership at the end of the 2015/16 season, are 15th in the second tier with only two wins from 12 matches.
