Nyasa Big Bullets Midfielder Chikondi Likwemba faces eight weeks on the sidelines with a dislocated shoulder, the club’s team doctor has confirmed.
Likwemba came off the bench in Sunday’s 2-1 victory away to Red Lions but he only lasted 13 minutes on the field as he was replaced in the 65th minute after landing awkwardly following a foul by a Red Lions player.
According to Bullets team doctor Godfrey Ng’ambi, the midfielder is expected to be out of action for a period of eight weeks.
“Following a test carried out on Chikondi Likwemba, the player has been diagnosed with a dislocated left shoulder, his condition will be evaluated,” he said.
“We are expecting him to be out for a least eight weeks and as we are speaking he is at his home where he is having a rest.”
Ng’ambi also gave a hint on other player’s injury updates, saying hitman Chiukepo Msowoya and defender Pilirani Zonda will be fit for the Blantyre derby on Saturday while revealing that Sankhani Mkandawire is a doubt.
He said: “They are fit [Chiukepo and Zonda] and they have had right training with the team, hopefully they would return on Saturday. As for Sankhani we are still assessing his progress.”
