Bulawayo City captain Zibusiso Sibanda suffered a serious fractured skull during their match against Ngezi Platinum Stars on Saturday at Barbourfields.
Sibanda collided with team-mate Nyasha Mukumbi when they both went after the same high ball. They wanted to clear the ball but instead their heads clashed with Sibanda seriously injured on the impact.
The skipper received first aid before he was whisked off to the hospital. He is currently admitted at Mpilo Hospital.
The status of his current condition will be announced once the club release details.
Meanwhile the Mukumbi recovered on pitch and managed to continue with the game. The match ended 1-0 in favour of the visiting Ngezi.
