“I was looking ahead to the Sundowns game following our win against Baroka, but I pulled a quad muscle on the day before the game. I ended up missing the game and have been out ever since," he added.
“I thought I was better at the beginning of this month and returned to training, but I sustained a tear on both my quad muscles on both sides. It is disappointing to be out but these things happen in football.
“We have been unfortunate with injuries and this is a time where we should all be fighting for points and of course the Nedbank Cup. It is part of the game and we all have to remain positive.
“We still have a good team, good enough for us to climb the log table. We need to work harder, knuckle down and start winning games. Our supporters have been behind the team and deserve a lot better from us."
With his return now seemingly imminent, the former Orlando Pirates, SuperSport United and Platinum Stars frontman says he still has a healthy appetite for collecting silverware as he sets sights on the Nedbank Cup title.
“You never get enough of winning. I am lucky to have won trophies even at the smaller teams I have played for, and now I am hungry to win something with Chippa United. The Nedbank Cup gives us an opportunity to achieve this and I believe in my teammates and everyone in the team," he said.
