Bafana Bafana suffered more injury setbacks ahead of the clash with Cameroon in their 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Tuesday.

Defender Anele Ngcongca is out with a calf muscle injury, while Thabo Matlaba has been ruled out with a concussion.

Goalkeeper Darren Keet has joined the list of unavailable players with a stomach bug.

Ngcongca was in Shakes Mashaba’s starting XI for the 2-2 draw against the Indomitable Lions, however he was replaced by Rivaldo Coetzee due to injury.

Matlaba played the full 90 minutes on Saturday – all three have been ruled out of Tuesday night’s must win clash at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.
