Now, after he was given the international break to get himself back to fitness, fans will be eager to see whether he has managed to put himself back in contention to face Cape Town City on Saturday afternoon as they chase a spot in the next round of the TKO.

Nurkovic didn’t feature in either the Shell Helix Ultra Cup or the Macufe Cup this past weekend as Middendorp experimented with his squad in a couple of friendly encounters, and Leonardo Castro’s hattrick against Mamelodi Sundowns may well have helped him stake a claim for a spot in the XI this coming weekend.
