Cape Town - Bafana Bafana striker Bernard Parker could be rested for Wednesday’s friendly match against Mali at the Monedan Stadium in Libreville, Gabon. Parker has a slight rib injury and could miss the match against the Eagles as a precautionary measure, with the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations set to begin on Saturday."Parker might not recover in time for the Mali match and we would rather play safe and have him sit out that match than aggravate his injury," team doctor Thulani Ngwenya told the TimesLive website.Tokelo Rantie and Rivaldo Coetzee also picked up knocks in South Africa’s 1-1 draw with Cameroon on Saturday night, but Ngwenya says there is nothing to worry about regarding the pair's fitness."Tokelo Rantie sustained a strained muscle and we are resting him as a precaution, it is nothing serious. He is receiving physiotherapy and we will reassess him tomorrow," he said."Rivaldo Coetzee sustained a knock on the knee and is also being rested as a precaution, so even there we don't need to worry."In other team news, goalkeeper Darren Keet is expected to join up with the Bafana camp on Tuesday night, following the birth of his first child in Belgium.Ayanda Gcaba, who was a late call up for injured team-mate Patrick Phungwayo, will also join the team on Tuesday evening.
