Jomo Cosmos have been dealt a major blow ahead of Sunday’s NFD tie at home to Tshakhuma Tsha FC.

Team Captain and regular centre back, Thato Lingwati sustained a hamstring injury at training on Friday evening, and has been effectively ruled out of the crucial encounter.

This latest development could compel team boss, Jomo Sono to reshuffle his team for the important clash, which could make or mar Ezenkosi’s chances of picking up a play off slot at the end of the regular season.

Lingwati became team captain following the departure of Linda Mntambo to Chippa United in mid season, and has made more than 20 starts for the team, scoring two goals in the process.
