Two test games to get Benni fit



Benni McCarthy was due to play a training match for Orlando Pirates both on Monday and again on Friday to see whether he will make the squad for next week’s trip to Cape Town.

“Benni is due to have a about 30 minutes on Monday in a friendly we have organised against a Vodacom League,” explained coach Roger de Sa.

“On Friday, there will be another match for Benni and for Andile Jali, who were are sure we be ready by next week,” the coach added.

Full back Happy Jele, who made a brief comeback after a year out with injury and scored against Black Leopards last Wednesday, will also get a full 90 minute outing on Friday.

“The 10 minutes against Leopards was really just to put his own mind at ease that he has fully recovered,” added the coach.

De Sa continued to express his pleasure at the fact his side had moved up to within one point of log leaders Kaizer Chiefs despite “losing the spine of the team”.

“Basically you take Moeneeb (Josephs), Rooi (Mahamutsa), Andile Jali and Benni out and you have lost the spine of the team. But we’ve managed to keep going without really missing a beat,” he added.
