Zwane comments on growing injury list

“I think these things (injuries) are happening for a reason. They happen to the best teams and players. It’s a case of us coming up with a plan like we’ve been doing.” Arthur Zwane told IOL.

“I am not that worried. Even though the list is growing. We are hoping that some of the players will be back before the season ends because we need them.

“My role is to keep everyone in the loop and ensure that they are part and parcel of the team. And in Tower’s (Mathoho’s) case, there’s no exception despite his contract.

“But the focus now is more on the individuals that we can help recover fully, and we’ll take it from there. We want the players who are ready and fit to compete.”
