Cape Town - Stand-in Bafana Bafana captain, Thabo Nthethe, is doubtful for Friday's clash against New Zealand in their final game Down Under.

Bafana take on the All Whites tomorrow morning before returning back to South Africa on Saturday, and word coming out of the SA camp is that the Mamelodi Sundowns player will most likely not start, and will be replaced by Buhle Mkhwanazi.

The Soccer-Laduma website has quoted a source close to the team: "Mkhwanazi is an ideal replacement for the former Bloemfontein Celtic defender, while Hlompho Kekana could also be sacrificed as a central midfielder to partner Mkhwanazi at the back. Nthethe missed two training sessions following a knock on his knee he sustained ahead of the Australia clash on Monday."

"However, the game will be a test for Igesund as he's set to change his tactics and format to go for a kill seeking redemption and take advantage of the football minnows. This is likely to be coach Igesund's headache as the All Whites team is made up of unknown players as they're in their rebuilding phase," revealed the source.
