SOCCER – WOUNDED Red Lions will be boosted by the availability of two international strikers; Kathlego Phiana and Ugochukwu Ohakwe when they take on Matsapha United. This will be during their second MTN Premier League match to be played at Somhlolo National Stadium on Sunday. watched The foreign pair watched from the stands during the team’s league opener against Manzini Sundowns where they suffered to a 0-4 loss last Sunday at the Somhlolo National Stadium due to paperwork problems. When sought for comment, the team’s Chief Executive Officer Comfort Shongwe confirmed that the two players would be available for selection against the high flying newcomers. “We have sorted the paperwork of the two players which forced them to miss the Sundowns match and they will now spearhead our attack. We believe they have the right experience to help the team compete effectively in all competitions. We are working hard at training as we want to collect three points this weekend. We did not play well against Sundowns over the weekend and we want to rectify that in this match,” he said. joined Ohakwe joined ‘Amabhubesi’ from Lubombo based side Tambuti FC while Phiana previously played for Vaal University in South Africa before committing himself to the Dumisani ‘DU’ Makhanya-led side.
