Cape Town - Chippa United striker Rhulani Manzini appears set for at least a month out of action due to a metatarsal injury.

The 28-year-old broke his fifth metatarsal during the first-leg of the MTN8 semi-final against Mamelodi Sundowns.

Chilli Boys physio Mark Anderson says progress is being made, but that it could be a month before the player returns to full training.

"He is improving. He saw the doctor on Tuesday but will still be on non-weight bearing for two weeks," Anderson told the club's website.

"Then weight bearing in the boot for further two weeks. He should most likely be OK to train then."

Manzini has already netted three goals for the Port Elizabeth-based side this season - two in the league and one in the MTN8.
