Two players have been dropped from the Warriors squad for the Afcon qualifier against Liberia due to injuries.
Terrence Dzvukamanja and Byron Madzokere will not be part of the team that will fly to the west African country next week ahead of the Group G encounter on November 18.
Dzvukamanja picked a back injury in Bidvest Wits’ win over Maritzburg United in the quarter-final of the Telkom Knockout tournament, while Madzokere was injured during Yadah’s league game against Bulawayo City last weekend.
“We didn’t want to risk taking along with us injured players, so these two guys are no longer going to Liberia,” Warriors manager Wellington Mpandare said, according to the Herald.
“The coaches saw no need. It would have made sense to call them and assess them if we were playing at home.
“So we are working with the 19 players that we have at the moment, and then we will see what happens after the weekend games. We are not ruling out chances that there could be more changes if we encounter injuries.”
The likes of Evans Rusike and Tino Kadewere have returned to the squad after missing the previous encounters due to injuries while goalkeeper George Chigova is fit to play following his recovery from a knee sprain.
