No clarity on Nengomasha's injury yet


The Zimbabwean international was expected to make a return to first team action on Friday evening when the Amakhosi were up against AmaZulu, after he had missed Chiefs’ Nedbank Cup win over Ajax Cape Town.

Nengomasha was originally included in Chiefs’ starting line-up on Friday but had to be removed from the team moments before kick off, as he had injured his Achilles tendon during the warm up.

According to Chiefs’ website, Ertugral then opted to move Jonathan Quartey into Tinashe’s role to fill in the void left by the general for the second game in succession.

Moketi Tsotetsi was brought off the bench into the central defensive position and Mandla Masango who was in the stands at the Olympia Park Stadium, had to make his way to the bench.

Nengomasha will now under go a scan to determine the extent of his injury.

Amakhosi physiotherapist David Milner explained to that the club will only have a clearer indication as to whether or not he will be available for the crucial Nedbank Cup match against Sundowns next Sunday some time on Tuesday.

“The medical guys at this stage cannot give us any certain answers; we are hoping though that it is not something serious and that he can start training again today and be available for the match.”
