HARARE - Former Zimbabwe captain and AmaZulu goalkeeper Tapuwa Kapini is on the mend after suffering a concussion in a changing room incident last month.

Although he still remains sidelines and unavailable for selection AmaZulu team manager, Japhet Zwane, revealed that the Zimbabwean has started training now.

“He (Kapini) has started training but he isn’t 100 % ready at the moment,” Zwane told Soccer Laduma.

Kapini has made eight league starts for Usuthu so far this season.

In Kapini’s absence, the club’s other goalkeepers Aubrey Mathibe and Philani Zikalala have been sharing the goalkeeping duties.

Mathibe, who has been the club’s second choice goalkeeper, has also started eight times for Craig Rosslee’s side in the 2013/14 campaign, while third choice goalkeeper Philani Zikalala has three appearances next two his name so far.

AmaZulu are third on the Absa Premiership standings with 28 points from 19 games. The team’s next game is against Wits at the Princess Magogo Stadium on Saturday, February 15.
