Mighty Wanderers first-choice goalkeeper Richard Chipuwa and defender Bongani Kaipa will be out of action for two weeks due to injuries.
Wanderersâ€™ team manager Chiyembekezo Zidana confirmed the news on Wednesday.
Chipuwa and Kaipa sustained injuries during their Super League match against Epac FC on Sunday at Silver Stadium that ended in 1-1 draw.
Chipuwa, who was influential in Wanderersâ€™ victory in the Standard Bank Knockout Trophy, dislocated a finger during a goalmouth scramble.
Kaipa suffered an ankle injury and was replaced by Allan Kamanga.
â€œIt is a setback but not a blow. We always anticipate such things to happen in football, that is why we sign many players,â€ said Zidana.
The absence of the two players saw Mighty Wanderers suffer a first defeat in eight games when they lost 1-0 to Blue Eagles on Motherâ€™s Day at Nankhaka ground.
Gerald Chimbaka has also been ruled out of this Saturdayâ€™s game because of illness.
