According to the statement issued on the club’s official Twitter account, Khuzwayo fractured two fingers during Thursday’s training.

“Brilliant Khuzwayo will now be out of the Carling Black Label Cup due to the injury and also the upcoming games. Khuzwayo fractured his third and fourth fingers just above the knuckles yesterday (Thursday) during training. Speedy recovery,” read the statement.

Reyaad Pieterse is expected to replace the Bafana Bafana goalkeeper in goal.

It’s not clear at this stage if recently signed Itumeleng Khune will now make the team now, following Khuzwayo’s injury.
