Injury dogs Wadabwa

Be Forward Wanderers top goal scorer Peter Wadabwa’s recovery has suffered a setback after the forward aggravated a groin injury.

Wadabwa picked the injury during the Bus Ipite Bonanza first leg against Nyasa Big Bullets in December last year.

He, however, returned to action two weeks ago and scored in Wanderers 1-0 victory over Dwangwa United at Chitowe, only to aggravate the injury in a match against Red Lions last weekend.

Wanderers team doctor Samuel Matukuta said the player needs time to recover.

“He just needs to rest for some weeks, but at the end of this month, is the earliest before he returns—as long as he doesn’t suffer any further setbacks,” he said.

Wadabwa rejoins other injured strikers Amos Bello and Ishmael Thindwa.

The former Escom United player said he is optimistic of returning to action soon.

In the absence of injured strikers, coach Yasin Osman has plenty of replacements in Khumbo Ng’ambi, Julius Kajembe, Jaffali Chande, Jimmy Zakazaka and Precious Msosa.

The coach has of late been using winger Yamikani Chester as striker.

The versatile midfielder has fitted in well, scoring in the last two matches.

Chester was on target when Wanderers beat Blantyre United 2-1 at Chilomoni Stadium to ascend to the summit of the Super League log table.

He followed it up with another impressive performance scoring in Wanderers 2-1 win over Red Lions at Balaka Stadium last Sunday.
