Gamildien set for Jan surgery

Telkom Knockout

"The injury is chronic and can be fixed anytime, so we decided to operate in January," team physio Jantho Greyling told Celtic's official website.

"He feels no pain, can play without protective padding and cannot cause more damage to the bone, so we decided to play him."

Telkom Knockout holders Phunya Sele Sele will start their cup defence with a fit squad against Mamelodi Sundowns in Botshabelo on Sunday.
