SOCCER – MANZINI Sundowns’ midfield-cum-defender Sabelo ‘Sawa’ Gamedze is unlikely to return for second leg of the 2015 AFCON qualifiers clash against Sierra Leone.

The player was dropped from the squad just before the first leg of the clash played at the Somhlolo National Stadium after coming down with chicken pox.

Sihlangu’s head-coach Harries ‘Madze’ Bulunga said they were still crossing their fingers that the player would recover in time for the second leg of the qualifiers scheduled for Freetown, Sierra Leone next weekend. However, the team’s manager Josiah Digger Dlamini said chances of the player making it for the game were very slim as he has not recovered for his illness.
