Timely boost for Matsatsantsa


Matsatsantsa have been boosted by the news that Thabo Mnyamane, Onismor Bhasera, Cole Alexander and Keegan Ritchie have all recovered from their respective injuries.

Mnyamane has been on the sidelines for the past two months after suffering a groin injury in the MTN8 final victory over Cape Town City in October, and recently missed the CAF Confederation Cup decider against TP Mazembe.

The 25-year-old has been an influential figure for the Tshwane side since his switch from University of Pretoria at the start of last season, and managed five goals in the recent Confederation Cup campaign.

Bhasera has yet to feature this season after undergoing a hip operation in July, after he sustained a knock in their continental group clash against The Ravens.

Meanwhile, Alexander and Ritchie have been hampered by injury in recent months as both last featured in a league match against Kaizer Chiefs in August.

"Obviously, Ronwen [Williams] is still out but we have Bhasera back in light training, as well as Thabo Mnyamane," SuperSport's media officer Brian Moshoeshoe confirmed to KickOff.com.

"Cole is also back and Keegan Ritchie played in the MultiChoice Diski Challenge match over the weekend. I think other than that, everyone else is fine."

It is unclear, though, whether any of the quartet will return for their next clash against Free State Stars on Wednesday (19h30), but coach Eric Tinkler will welcome the options as they face two more games in the space of six days.
