Mamelodi Sundowns have issued an update on their injured players, with their key player Keagan Dolly unlikely to feature for the team on the weekend.
Dolly was sidelined during Bafana Bafana’s clash against Mauritania on Friday, September 2 after precaution was taken due to a hamstring injury the player sustained.
However, the 23-year-old featured for the national team’s match against the Pharaohs of Egypt on Tuesday, September 05, where Shakes Mashaba's side won the Nelson Mandela Challenge at the Orlando Stadium.
Now, Sundowns have confirmed that Dolly is suffering from tonsillitis and he and his teammate Anele Ngcongca will not feature during the first-leg of the MTN8 semi-final clash on Sunday, September 11, against Chippa United.
"Keagan Dolly and Anele Ngcongca are doubtful for Mamelodi Sundowns’ MTN8 semi-final match against Chippa United," Sundowns confirmed on their official website.
As reported by the Siya crew yesterday, Ngcongca’s official debut in the Ka Bo Yellow colours will have to be put on hold, after the player sustained a minor knee injury during training.
"Well travelled Bafana Bafana defender Anele Ngcongca will go for an MRI scan after injuring his knee at training."
"Keagan Dolly on the other has come down with tonsillitis and has been excused from training."
"There’s more worries at the back for the PSL defending champions as Muzi Mashaba, Siyanda Zwane and Ricardo Nascimento have the team doctors working around the clock."
"Nascimento is recovering while Mashaba will be sidelined, both by groin related injuries. Siyanda Zwane has flu," Sundowns concluded.
