Botha ruled fit to play


Botha was stretchered off the field after colliding with AmaZulu defender Pere Ariweriyai in Wednesday’s league match.

He was later treated for concussion.

“We are happy that his injury is not as serious as we initially thought. The doctor has declared him fit to play in our next game,” says Royal’s manager Thabani Gumede of the player who scored a consolation goal in their 2-1 defeat.

Gumede added they will be minus defender James Sangala and Ahmed Mohamed, who are injured and serving a suspension, respectively.
