Ajax Cape Town have been dealt yet another blow with the news of Thulani Hlathswayo's injury.
Hlatshwayo suffered a first-half injury in Bafana Bafana’s mid-week 2-1 loss to neighbours Zimbabwe and was subsequently substituted.
The Urban Warriors have a number of injuries to their squad, including Lance Davids, Toriq Losper, Koen van der Laak, Granwald Scott and Travis Graham, however Scott and Graham could pass late fitness tests and be available for selection on Friday, when Ajax take on Wits.
Graham suffered a knock in Ajax’s 2-1 home defeat to AmaZulu, however it is believed to be a minor niggle.

In addition, Franklin Cale sustained an injury at training this week, which head coach Muhsin Ertugral puts down to the fact that Cale hadn’t taken part in the club’s pre-season training.
Competitive league matches have been few and far in between for Ajax Cape Town this season, having played only two matches in the 2013/14 Absa Premiership campaign so far.
The Urban Warriors travel to Braamfontein to take on Wits this weekend, who have also only played two matches, however the Clever Boys have managed a win and a draw in their first two league outings.
