Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town’s injury
list is clearing up as the 2015/16 season fast approaches with players like
Travis Graham, Nathan Paulse and Ziyaad Eksteen getting closer to full fitness.
Sport24 broke the news that club captain,Graham, would be fit to feature in the Cape Town Cup last weekend after it
was initially thought that he would be out for the start of the PSL season.
Graham recovered fast
enough to have a big impact as a substitute against both Sporting Lisbon and
SuperSport United, grabbing a late goal against the latter.
More good news for
Urban Warriors is that veteran striker, Nathan Paulse and youngster Ziyaad
‘Ziggy’ Eksteen, are getting closer to returning to formal training.
Sport24 spoke to Julian Bailey
from the club’s media and communications department who shed more light on the
expected time frames for the players’ recoveries.
“Another three weeks or
so until he [Eksteen] starts training,” Bailey said.
“Paulse is closer to
Morris and goalkeeper, Brandon Petersen, will be out for a while longer after
both suffered serious knee injuries towards the end of last season.
“Morris with Petersen
are longer term injuries,” he confirmed.
New signing Thomas
Chideu also picked up an injury while on international duty with the Zimbabwean under-23 side but the player is yet to make it to Cape Town to be assessed by
the club’s medical team.
