South Africa will play Poland on October 12 and Kenya four days later in internatinal friendlies, as Igesund's preparations for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations shift into top gear.
Igesund – who will name his squad today – says the absence of the likes of Siboniso Gaxa, Thulani Serero and Morgan Gould because of injury is a major blow to the Bafana technical team.
"The injuries are a concern to me," Igesund tells KickOff.com.
"Serero, Morgan Gould and Siboniso Gaxa are likely to be on the sidelines for a longer period because they have serious injuries.
"Others such as Teko [Modise] and Reneilwe Letsholonyane also have niggling injuries so they are out of the picture for now.
"It is tricky but these are some of the things that you have deal with as a coach," Igesund says.
The coach is also worried that more players might be injured this weekend in League action.
"The squad will be announced today and we have a full programme of League fixtures this weekend. This means more players may be injured before our first match against Poland."
