Warriors captain out of Tanzania tie

ANOTHER injury blow has struck in the Warriors camp following the unavailability of captain Carlington Nyadombo for the Afcon qualifier first round, second leg against Tanzania.
Nyadombo was one of the five players to join the team that fell 1-0 away in Tanzania last Sunday.
The withdrawal of Czech Republic-based defender and Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Matthew Rusike who were part of the players expected to join the team has been compounded by AmaZulu’s Nyadombo who is yet to gain fitness.
This has left coach Ian Gorowa in a tight corner as he tries to overturn the shock defeat suffered in Dar es Salaam.
Team manager Shariff Mussa confirmed that Nyadombo is out of the return leg.
“We had hoped that Carlington would be fit by now but that is not the case. His club informed us that he is not yet fit and has not been training with the team,” Mussa said.
“We cannot risk him. The coach will decide next week if he will add any other player but for now those who played in Tanzania are all available.”
Mussa also said they are not certain if Edward. Sadomba of Libyan giants Al Ahly-Benghazi would be available.
“We pleaded with Sadomba’s club that we really need him and they said they will look into that. They have a Champions League game this weekend so we will see if they can release him after that match,” he said.
However there is good news on Ovidy Karuru who has finished duty with his Jupiler League side OH Leuven and the midfielder is expected to join national team camp on Monday.Advertisement
