AmaZulu Physiotherapist Ryan Coert has given an update on this week’s injury news, with news on the long-term injuries of Bonginkosi Ntuli and Sphesihle Maduna.
The duo is yet to feature this season since being ruled prior to the start of the DStv Premiership from training induced injuries.
“Both Ntuli and Maduna suffered a fifth metatarsal fracture on both their left feet,” explained Coert.
“We are currently using a machine called a Osteotron machine which helps speed up the healing of the bones with the fracture just a little bit.
“So, we are doing x-rays on a weekly basis to see the progress. Ntuli is doing very well, he is currently still on a moon boot, but we are hoping to get him out of it within the next week.
“Maduna suffered the same injury a week and a half after Ntuli’s injury so he will probably follow in the same progress soon and get off the moon boot and crutches. Thenboth can start running on the anti-gravity treadmill before they can start on the field again,” said Coert.
“Then Siphiwe Tshabalala sustained a thigh strain. We are still monitoring him, and he should be cleared soon.”
