Shabalala Joins Stars Injury List

According to a Soccer-Laduma source at the Bethlehem-based outfit, Shabalala is set to spend some time on the sidelines although his injury is not as serious as those of the other two defenders.

“Themba got injured last week. He picked up a thigh injury. Who do we have left now? Only (Soriola) Gege and (Sadate) Ouro Akoriko are available. We have a serious shortage of players at the back and we may see one of the midfielders playing at the back in the not so distant future. We have no choice.

"No one expected the situation that we find ourselves in. The team has five experienced centre-backs but Daniel Cardoso, Mbhuyiselo Sambu and Themba Shabalala are all injured. We are left with only two guys that can play. That’s a challenge for the team. We are keeping fingers crossed that the guys don't get red cards or suffer more injuries” said the source.
