Kapini to go for ankle scan
Goalkeeper Tapuwa Kapini is to undergo a scan on his ankle on Friday to determine whether it has healed for him to return to training at AmaZulu.
The Zimbabwe international goalkeeper has been out since September but coach Roger Palmgren told supersport.com that Kapini was expected back at the training ground next week.
“We just need a scan first to see if everything is okay and then he will be back,” said the Swedish-born coach, who has used three different goalkeepers already this season.
Kapini underwent surgery after being injured in international action in mid-September, taken off with 15 minutes left in Harare in Zimbabwe’s 3-1 win over Angola in their Nations Cup final round, first leg encounter. He was hurt in a collision that led to the Angolan consolation goal.
But he went into the game with a small ligament tear in his left ankle that had seen him sidelined for AmaZulu’s previous two matches but surprisingly given an all clear to play by his doctors for Zimbabwe, only to be promptly hurt again
Mbongeni Mzimela took his place but was dropped soon after with Philani Zikalala becoming the third goalkeeper for AmaZulu this season.
