AmaZulu coach Craig Rosslee has confirmed that Tapuwa Kapini will miss the rest of season with a neck injury.
Kapini told KickOff.com last week: "I may go for the operation on Monday if the healing process is not improving. With regards to the season, I don't think I will play again. I can't straighten up my neck and you can see I have a neck brace."
Now Rosslee has confirmed: "The latest report we got from the doctors is that he is officially out for the season and it looks like it was more serious than we thought as a club," Rosslee said.
"It's unfortunate for him because he has done well for us throughout this season, but thank goodness we have Philani Zikalala and Aubrey Mathibe in so we are covered in that department.

The Usuthu coach wants to win at all costs in their next game against Platinum Stars on Wednesday, with a top-eight finish the priority for the club.
"We want to go there for the win and stay in the top eight and that is the objective that we have set for ourselves. Other team who are underneath us, we don't want them to catch us and with a win there will be daylight," adds Rosslee.
"A draw won't help us and we go there for the win. We have done extremely well away from home this season and we're gonna continue with that good vein of form.
"For the remaining games, from a possible twelve points, I think eight is a target and we are looking at having 45 points. That is the benchmark we have targeted to be in the top eight. So it's two wins and two draws mathematically."
