Malawi super league holders Big Bullets goal keeper Owen Chaima will be out for six weeks with a shoulder injury.

The shot stopper was stretched off during his side’s 4-2 victory over Red Lions on Sunday afternoon at Kamuzu Stadium.

Goalkeeper Gona has fallen ill.

The team’s vice general secretary Kelvin Moyo Confirmed the extent of the injury to the media before Sunday’s trip to Civo for Standard Bank Knockout Cup quarter final clash against Moyale Barracks.

“Yes it’s true, Owen will be sidelined for up to six weeks. He doesn’t have a fracture in his shoulder but Doctors have advised him to rest for the said weeks,” he said.

This latest injury leaves the Super League defending champions with only Chimwemwe Kumkwawa as their back up goal keeper following revelations that Vincent Gona is ill, a development which has left the team in goalkeeping crisis.

“It’s a blow to the team and looking at the games coming up, it’s a very big problem but we have left everything in the hands of the technical panel to tell us the way forward by today,” he said.

“We have Chimwemwe Kumkwawa and Swadick Sanudi who can play but he is now ageing so we will wait for the technical panel’s response,” concluded Moyo.

Kumkwawa will likely replace the duo, having already stepped in for Chaima when he sustained the injury just before the break
