Citizens suffer double midfield blow

READ: City in talks with Teko over new deal

City confirmed the news on Tuesday that Nodada and Putsche will no longer be playing any part in their campaign due to injuries sustained in their 3-0 victory over Highlands Park in the Nedbank Cup Last 16 clash on the weekend.

Putsche was the first casualty after just 16 minutes as he was replaced by Teko Modise, before Nodada was forced off after 66 minutes with the score then at 1-0.

The club have since confirmed a meniscus tear for the Austrian midfield enforcer and a leg fracture for the Bafana Bafana international workhorse, while also lamenting the poor officiating that supposedly led to the duo's respective injuries.
