Prince Dube could miss the Warriors’ vital Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers against Botswana and Zambia in about three weeks’ time due to injury.
Dube, who turns out for Azam in the Tanzanian league, pulled a hamstring in his side’s goalless draw against log anchors Mwadul on Saturday. Said, Dube:
I don’t know the gravity of the injury as yet, but I pulled a hamstring on Saturday in the 27th minute. It is disappointing, but that’s the nature of the game.
Dube scored the equaliser in the Warriors’ last AFCON qualifier against group leaders Algeria which ended 2-2 last November.
The former Highlanders striker joins a list of Warriors strikers doubtful for the must-win AFCON qualifiers.
Kaizer Chiefs’ Khama Billiat has not played football since a leg injury in January, Orlando Pirates forward Terrence Dzvukamanja is nursing an ankle injury, while it is not clear if David Moyo of Hamilton Academical and Admiral Muskwe of Wycombe Wanderers will travel for the games.
The other strikers included in coach Zdravko Logarusic’s bloated 38-man squad are Tinotenda Kadewere (Olympique Lyonnais), Farau Matare (Bulawayo Chiefs), Knox Mutizwa (Lamontville Golden Arrows) and Evans Rusike (SuperSport United).
