Mkhize suffers another injury setback as Cosmos prepare for Royal Eagles cracker


Ezenkosi forward, Sicelo Mkhize has been ruled out with an injury while the medical team is sweating over team captain Thato Lingwati’s fitness ahead of this weekend’s NFD tie away to Royal Eagles.

Mkhize limped off in the 30th minute of last weekend’s 3-1 defeat of Tshakhuma TM following an ankle injury, and has been unable to participate in subsequent training sessions.

Despite being plagued by injuries, the 22-year-old former Real Kings star has emerged as Ezenkosi’s most clinical forward this season, with a return of five goals and four assists in 16 matches.

Similarly, team Captain Thato Lingwati, a conspicuous absentee from last weekend’s game against TTM, has missed training since the beginning of the week, and risks omission from the squad to face Royal Eagles.
