Baroka awaiting medical report on Masuluke’s injury


Baroka goalkeeper Oscarine Masuluke is yet to return to training with the rest of his teammates following a back injury.

Masuluke was taken off in the 30th minute of their 1-0 win over Sekhukhune United on Saturday.

The keeper was reportedly struggling to jump or stand and had to spend the rest of the match under medical care.

Head coach Matsemela Thoka says the 28-year-old has shown tremendous improvement in recovery.

“Oscarine (Masuluke) got an injury against Sekhukhune. It was quite serious because he has not been training with us,” said Thoka.

“We are still waiting for the physio and we have two days to travel to Durban so we will hear from him on how he is recovering but if he is not okay, we have Cyril Chibwe and Chipezeze who will take over.

“But it’s one of those things. He is looking better than he was on Saturday and we wish him a speedy recovery,” he said.

Masuluke has taken over the number one jersey since his return to the club from TS Sporting last season.
