Johannesburg [South Africa], May 2 (ANI): Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Jackson Mabokgwane is expected to miss the team's last two Premier Soccer League (PSL) matches after undergoing a successful operation to repair his injured finger.
This information regarding Mabokgwane came out ahead of their PSL clash with Cape Town City on Saturday.
"Goalkeeper Jackson Mabokgwane underwent a successful operation on his injured finger. Unfortunately, due to this intervention, this means that the goal minder will miss the remaining games of the season against Cape Town City and Polokwane City," Orlando Pirates said in a statement.
"Mabokgwane, who injured his finger during a training session is expected to be out for around six weeks. According to the Bucs' medical team, the 31-year-old will undergo reassessment on May 6, 2019, for removal of stitches and then will commence physiotherapy and occupational therapy," he added.
The club also revealed that that defender Diamond Thopola and midfielder Kudakwashe Mahachi can return to train after they both recovered from their respective injuries. (ANI)
