Ezenkosi Captain, Linda Mntambo

Action resumes in the NFD this weekend after the international break as Jomo Cosmos tackle Cape Town All Stars in Cape Town on Friday afternoon.

Kick off at the Athlone Stadium is 15h30.

Both teams have amassed eight points each from six games with goal difference separating the sides. Cosmos are 6th on the log while All Stars sit in 8th.

Ezenkosi go into this game on the back of their 1-1 draw at home against Uthongathi FC early in the month.

Meanwhile, the medical team has issued a clean bill of health for centre back Sabelo Madi and midfielder Brian “Bebeto” Mdaka as the duo resumed training with the rest of the squad in midweek. Both players had been nursing knee injuries.

Striker Franklin Ogbonna was also involved in light jogging exercise as he recovers from a severe knee injury.

However, star act Tebogo “Messi” Tlolane is only expected to resume light training towards the end of the month as he targets return to full fitness in November.

The skillful midfielder has been out of action since the start of this season after copping a serious groin injury in the off season.
