The 27-year-old has been out of action for more than a month now after suffering a mysterious injury to his foot.

The former Polokwane City player found out earlier last month that he suffered a fractured metatarsal.

"I will only be back in training in two weeks." Alexander tells snl24.com/kickoff. "At th moment I'm just sitting at home not even doing light training by myself.

"I broke the smallest toe in my right foot but only found out about it when I went for a scan. I probably broke it at training, I don't know."

Alexander says he was excited to learn that his team managed to reach the Nedbank Cup last 16 by beating Kwa Dukuza United 2 - 0 yesterday.

"Oh yes we won last night, and it's good that we are through to the next round."
