Hearts of Oaks goalie out of ac­tion

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport - Allen Khu­malo Sports Re­porter

HEARTS of Oaks will have to do with­out their first choice goal­keeper Thabitha Mpofu when they face High­landers Roy­als to­day in a South­ern Re­gion Women Foot­ball League af­ter she picked up a knee in­jury dur­ing the week.

Mpofu twisted her knee while do­ing house chores at her home. It is not yet known how long Mpofu will be out of ac­tion.

“I went to see a doc­tor and I was told to un­dergo an x-ray. Right now I am not sure how long I will be out of ac­tion but hope­fully, I will be back soon. I know the team will per­form at its best be­cause we have a good re­place­ment,” said Mpofu.

Hearts of Oaks will be trav­el­ling to the club house in high spir­its fol­low­ing a 3-0 vic­tory over Cow­dray Park Queens last week.

Roy­als on the other hand will be hop­ing to atone for their 2-0 de­feat at the hands of Mag­wegwe Stars.

Last week’s round of matches pro­duced a rather shock­ing re­sult af­ter Bor­row Jets man­aged to end In­line Academy’s 14 match win­ning streak by hand­ing the ta­ble top­pers a 2-0 de­feat. In­line coach Boga Nde­bele looked un­fazed with the re­sult as he said the loss was a bless­ing in dis­guise.

“We are now in the cli­max of the sea­son, some­one needed to give us a re­al­ity check so that we keep our heads fo­cused on the ti­tle,” Nde­bele said.

In­line will be in ac­tion to­day when they clash with Street Set at Sizinda.
