The 38-year-old hasn’t played an official game since their 2014 Nedbank Cup final victory over Bidvest Wits and now Lekgwathi is set for one last game before he retires.
Lekgwathi has been struggling to find fitness as his aging legs are starting to give in following a number of leg and ankle injuries.
"Look, Skipper [Lekgwathi] has been vulnerable to injuries, and this has badly affected any his chance of him playing a competitive match this season," said an unnamed source to goal.com.
"Skipper is battling to regain his full-fitness, and he has been doing light training for sometime now. Also the likes of Ayanda [Gcaba], [Ntsikelelo] Nyauza and Tshepo [Gumede] are ahead of him in the pecking order in our defence.
"He has just been too unfortunate with injuries this season, and sadly we might have seen the last of Skipper, as age is also not on his side.”
