Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila will be without their star player Justin Shonga when they take on fellow DStv Premiership debutants, TS Galaxy at Thohoyandou Stadium this afternoon.
Shonga was allowed to fly back to Zambia immediately after their 3-2 defeat by SuperSport United on Saturday last week, to sort out some family matters.
But FARPost has gathered information that the 23-year-old is finding difficult to return to South Africa due to some passport issues and will therefore miss this afternoon’s match.
He was expected to arrive in the country on Wednesday, but this publication has been reliably informed that the striker will only be able to arrive on Monday, a day after their match against the Rockets.
Meanwhile, the club has also registered more players ahead of the match and will have a full bench.
TTM played with three substitutions last week against Matsatsantsa after failing to register more players on time.
The match starts at 15:30.
