Mlaba, Sdumo and Fash doubt­ful for ‘Vovovo clash

SHigh­landers are likely to be with­out the trio of their key play­ers Mla­muli ‘Mlaba’ Nkam­bule, Mfanu­fik­ile ‘Fash’ Ndz­i­mandze and Sdumo Vi­lakati due to in­jury.

High­landers will face off with Pre­mier League rook­ies Vovovo in their sec­ond game of the league at Somhlolo Na­tional Sta­dium this af­ter­noon. Vi­lakati col­lided with Manzini Wan­der­ers sturdy for­ward Kola Aladeon dur­ing their league open­ing clash last week Sun­day where Lan­ders emerged vic­to­ri­ous, beat­ing Wan­der­ers 4-1 and was re­placed by for­mer Royal Leop­ard goal­keeper Mphikeleli Dlamin.

Mean­while Fash was said to have played with a ham­string in­jury in the same game and was limp­ing to­wards the end of the clash while Nkam­bule has a re­cur­ring knee in­jury. High­landers PRO Paul ‘Magidze­ludza­k­eni’ Masilela said they are bank­ing on a late fit­ness test for the pair of Nkam­bule and Ndz­i­mandze. “The only player I’m sure will miss the game is Sidumo Vi­lakati but the team has enough depth and if the play­ers are not avail­able for se­lec­tion, we have equally ca­pa­ble play­ers to re­place them,” he said.

High­landers are cur­rently sec­ond on the log table af­ter what was a per­fect start to the league cam­paign fol­low­ing their 4-1 vic­tory over Wan­der­ers.
