Table topping Township Rollers have received an injury boost when experienced goalkeeper Kabelo Dambe recently resumed training.

But the club has put him on a light training programme to ease him back into first team action. The shot-stopper made his return to field training last week.

Dambe suffered a nose fracture in a Botswana Football League game against Security Systems last month. He appeared well on his way to recording another clean sheet for the club until his outing was cut short on the day.’

Immediate surgery

The facial injury required immediate surgery, which he successfully underwent at Gaborone Private Hospital immediate after he sustained it.

Dambe has been out of action for almost three weeks and is expected to make a return to first team action within the next two weeks if there is no aggravation during his light training.

The club has managed to stay afloat in the race for the league title in his absence, climbing to the top of the league standings with a two-game advantage over their nearest rivals, Jwaneng Galaxy.

More first team injuries 

Dambe’s return will bring relief to Popa who have been dealt other injury blows with Mogakolodi Ngele and Letlhogonolo Chenjela facing spells on the sidelines, according to a statement released by the club.

Ngele is expected to miss up to two weeks of action due to a groin strain. Chenjela is facing an extended spell in the treatment room as he is expected to miss three months of league and cup action for the Gaborone giants owing to a partial right tibia fracture.
