Manyama broke three toes in February, and the initial prognosis was that he would make it back before the campaign closes.

“This season is over (for him),” said Ertugral on Thursday, however.

“He had three broken toes, the operation was  very successful and hopefully at the beginning of May he will have the pin taken out. We don’t want to force him back.”

Ertugral admitted that Aces have missed Manyama since he got injured.

“Lebo’s injury has brought us back down to earth a bit,” he said.

“Since he got injured we are still creating chances, but we are not scoring.”
