The second round of the 2017-2018 NFD season resumes this weekend as Jomo Cosmos look to consolidate on their lofty position.
However, Ezenkosi will be without midfielders Matsilele Junior Sono and Dawny “Chillies” Makgatho plus the suspended Thato Lingwati for the tricky tie away to Real Kings at Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium.
Junior Sono received a knock at training in midweek and misses the trip to Durban while Chillies is out with a stomach bug.
Star forward Sicelo Mkhize is also unavailable due to a shoulder sprain while striker Franklin Ogbonna gets set for an operation on his troubled knee.
Cosmos currently enjoy second spot in the NFD with 28 points from 15 matches, two points shy of log leaders Highlands Park.
Real Kings are fourth with 24 points from the same number of matches.
