Maritzburg United have been boosted by injury reports on Kurt Lentjies and Thamsanqa Mkhize.
Neither player finished Monday’s goalless draw against Jomo Cosmos, with Lentjies pulling up with a hamstring problem and Mkhize twisting his ankle.
But Team of Choice PRO Brian Zuma says neither injury was as bad as initially feared.
“It is minor knocks and not as long-term as we maybe thought,” he tells KickOff.com.
“We took a precaution that Lentjies should not risk further injury, while Mkhize took a knock but should be okay for the next game.”
Zuma adds that they are still battling to secure work-permits for their foreign signings, Zimbabwean striker Evans Rusike and Kenyan defender Brian Onyango.
The Team of Choice will be in action against Ajax Cape Town next Saturday.
