Highlanders have been dealt a heavy blow amid revelations by the club’s technical manager, Madinda Ndlovu, that their inform goalkeeper Ariel Sibanda has picked an injury.
The goalie joins captain Honest Moyo and striker Tafadzwa Sibanda in the treatment room ahead of their Chibuku Super Cup quarter-final tie against Harare City at Rufaro Stadium on Saturday.
Ariel suffered a nasty head injury during the club’s league match against CAPS United last Sunday.
“Ariel Sibanda hasn’t trained this entire week. He got a nasty head injury last Sunday. It seems to be severe and he joins Honest and Tafadzwa who also got a head injury during our league match against Yadah. Tafadzwa still has stitches on his head,” said Madinda.
The gaffer adds that they will push hard for a win against City.
“It’s more like a money game. We will push hard for a win because this is the only cup that we can realistically win. It’s now late for us to talk about winning the championship,” he said.
