Free State Stars defender, Themba Shabalala, is doubtful for the game against SuperSport United. The 26-year-old is struggling with a hamstring injury.
According to a source at Ea Lla Koto, Shabalala was taken for a scan to determine the extent of his injury after training on Tuesday morning.
“Themba Shabalala was taken for a scan after training on Tuesday. He is feeling tightness in both his hamstrings. He has been having the same problem since last week. He missed one of the training sessions last week, as the team was preparing for the game against AmaZulu. He played against AmaZulu last weekend although the problem still persisted. The player is doubtful for the game against SuperSport United,” said the source.
Shabalala and Mbhuyiselo Sambu played in central defence in Kinnah Phiri’s team against AmaZulu in the absence of Sadate Ouro Akoriko and Daniel Cardoso.
Ea La Koto welcome Matsatsantsa at the Charles Mopeli Stadium tonight with the match commencing at 18:00.
