Nyasha out, Mphela returns



Mamelodi Sundowns striker Nyasha Mushekwi has been ruled out of the league match against Free State Stars, after picking up a knock during a training session in preparation for the crucial match.

There's some encouraging signs however for The Brazilians, as another top striker returns to the team.

Striker Katlego Mphela, who has been out recovering from a knee operation might return to action, as the Bafana Bafana international has travelled with the team to take on Stars.

Also missing the match is defender Punch Masenamela, who is due for surgery, while midfielder Lebohang Mokoena has already undergone surgery and is expected to be out for at least six weeks.

Goalkeeper Dennis Onyango is close to regaining full fitness, after recovering from a rib bruise he sustained at training.
