Cape Town - Platinum Stars communications manager Tebogo Mochadibane has confirmed that veteran attacking midfielder Abia Nale has returned to full fitness after overcoming an injury that saw him ruled out for seven matches.

Roger de Sa's men are currently bottom of the Premiership table having collected just seven points from their opening 10 league matches.

Dinaledi will no doubt be hoping for improved fortunes when they take on high-flying Bloemfontein Celtic on Wednesday at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium.

And, they will be buoyed by having Nale be available for Stars in the contest with Mochadibane telling Soccer Laduma website: "Nale is back in the team and will be a welcome addition to the team as he has been sorely missed.

"Nale has been part of the preparations during the international break as we have played a few friendly fixtures to get the team ready as we want to improve our position and having a full squad will be key for us."

Since arriving at the club in 2016/17 from Maritzburg United, the 31-year-old has made 13 appearances in the PSL, although he is yet to register his first goal for the outfit from Phokeng.     

Meanwhile, longer term injury casualty Mduduzi Nyanda remains on the sidelines as he battles to recover from an Achilles tendon injury.
