Jomo Cosmos defender, Riaan Hanamub has rejoined the rest of the squad ahead of this weekend’s Nedbank Cup qualifier against Real Kings.

However, Hanamub, who missed the last two NFD fixtures against Stellenbosch FC and Real Kings following the indisposition and subsequent death of his father back home, remains shut out after injuring his Achilles tendon at training on Thursday.

The 23-year-old joined Ezenkosi from top Namibian side Orlando Pirates in the off season, and has played eight official games for Cosmos so far this current season.

Meanwhile, utility player Bafana Tshawe will also miss out of the Ezenkosi’s squad this weekend.

The 20-year-old sustained a calf injury while in camp with the South African U20 side and has been ruled out. Tshawe is playing in his first full season for Cosmos and has featured in 10 official games this term.
