Mothiba recovery good for Bafana
Lebo Mothiba (right) returned from injury for French side Strasbourg on Sunday, but only as a last minute substitute as they won 3-0 at home to Reims in a Ligue 1 battle. Mothiba hadn’t played for Strasbourg since 21 December, and will hope to now get more game time and add to his three league goals thus far this season. His next chance comes on 16 February, when Strasbourg, currently sixth in the table, travel to Lyon. Mothiba’s return is also a boost to Bafana head coach Molefi Ntseki ahead of their Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers next month.
