Bidvest Wits will know this week whether new signing Xola Mlambo faces surgery on an ankle injury suffered earlier this month against his old club Chippa United.
The 25-year-old is in a moon boot after receiving a heavy tackle in the league game played before the international break on November 1.
He will see doctors this week to assess the extent of the injury and could then face an operation that will leave him out of action for an extended period, club officials told KickOff.com.
Signed from Chippa at the start of the season, Mlambo, who missed Saturday night’s victory at Platinum Stars that keeps Wits top of the table, quickly established himself in the starting line-up with his strong midfield play.
