After being reduced to a sideshow for two months due to a thigh injury, Mighty Be Forward Wanderers striker Jabulani Linje has fully recovered.
Linje and the Nomads’ team manager Stevie Madeira yesterday confirmed that specialists at Beit Cure International Hospital in Blantyre have certified him fit to bounce back into action.
However, the gifted forward will not be available for selection for today’s Standard Bank Knockout Cup preliminary round match against Mafco slated for Civo Stadium in Lilongwe.
“I am now okay and I can’t wait to return to action, it has been quite a while.
“However, for tomorrow’s [today] match, I won’t be available,” said Linje.
He last featured for the Nomads towards the end of the first-round after suffering a crack on his thigh muscle.
However, Madeira said defender Francis Mlimbika and striker Ishmael Thindwa are still nursing knee injuries.
“They are still attending physiotherapy at Beit Cure and could be out for a few more weeks,” he said.
Big Bullets’ defence pillar Sankhani Mkandawire is also nursing an injury.
Nomads’ midfield kingpin RafiqMussa also returned to action recently after being sidelined by a groin injury.
Silver Strikers also welcomed back their midfielder Blessings Tembo who has been out for over six months.
