Nkhatha Set For Scan

Kaizer Chiefs have been handed yet another blow to their strike force with the news that Kingston Nkhatha has picked up a hip injury.

The 27-year-old forward started against Orlando Pirates during the recent 0-0 Soweto Derby draw - read full match report here - however was substituted not long into the second half.

Now it has been revealed to Soccer-Laduma that the Zimbabwean has aggravated a hip injury that he picked up when facing his former team, Black Leopards, last month and will now have to undergo an MRI scan.

Nkhatha is set have his scan this week as the club’s medical team look to assess how long he will be on the sidelines, although it is thought that it isn’t a long-term injury.

The striker now joins his strike colleagues, Lehlohonolo Majoro and Matthew Rusike, on the sidelines, while the likes of George Lebese, Jimmy Jambo and Jimmy Tau are also out of contention at present.

Having come on as a substitute in their last two games, it is thought that Sthembiso Ngcobo will be the man to stand in for the injured Nkhatha when the Amakhosi take on Polokwane City in their Nedbank Cup game this month.
