Lehlohonolo Nonyane nears Golden Arrows return from injury

Golden Arrows left-back Lehlohonolo Nonyane has returned to training after a two-month spell on the sidelines with a groin injury.
Nonyane has missed Arrows' previous seven games since sustaining the knock in a 1-0 win over Chippa United at Princess Magogo Stadium on October 15.
Abafana Bes'thende coach Clinton Larsen expects Nonyane will play again before the end of the year, having deployed Clifton Miheso and Matome Mathiane in his absence with limited success.
"Nonyane has started light training and I don’t think he will be ready against Bidvest Wits [next Wednesday]," Larsen tells KickOff.com. "We are having a look at him but I don’t think he will be ready for this coming match.
"I think the match against Baroka FC and Kaizer Chiefs he should be ready because he has started light training. Having said that, we don't want to rush him because the groin is a sensitive injury and if you come back too soon it can go again and will have him out for long.
"But we have been missing him because we don’t have another left-back. It will be nice to have him back for the last two before we close."
