Be Forward Wanderers have expressed uncertainty on the return of forwards Ishmael Thindwa and Amos Bello from injury lay-offs.
Thindwa got injured while playing for the Flames against Madagascar in April whereas Bello has not played competitive football since March when he got injured in the Wafawafa Big Four Bonanza against Nyasa Big Bullets at Bingu National Stadium in Lilongwe.
At first it was reported that Thindwa would be on the sidelines for three weeks but six weeks down the line, the former Caps United striker is yet to return to action.
Both forwards will likely miss the first round of the TNM Super League.
Asked yesterday to state when the two centre forwards would be available for selection, Wanderers Team Manager, Steve Madeira was elusive.
“At the moment they have been going to the gym. The doctor will assess the two players on Tuesday to determine when they will be back,” Madeira said.
Wanderers boast of quality forwards including Jabulani Linje, Peter Wadabwa, Jaffalie Chande and Jimmy Zakazaka.
In the absence of Thindwa and Bello, youngsters Precious Msosa and Julius Kajembe have been enjoying game time.
The Nomads have started the season on a high having collected maximum points in four games. As of Sunday, the Nomads were tied in the top three bracket of the TNM Super League log table with 12 points, at par with Red Lions and Azam Tigers.
Kaukau were due to play Chitipa United in a match where they needed just a point to take a clear lead.
The Nomads have been exempted from competitive matches alongside Silver Strikers after contributing more than three players to the Flames’ squad currently competing at this year’s Cosafa Cup in South Africa.
