South African side Free State Stars are still sweating over the fitness of goalkeeper Daniel Agyei.
Agyei, 24, Â is struggling with injury and missed the sideâ€™s derby against Bloemfontein Celtic last weekend.
Starsâ€™ interim coach Themba Sithole used Ayanda Mtshali in goal for that game, ahead of the experienced Tshepo Motsoeneng as they lost 2-0 at the Goble Park Stadium stadium.
â€œDaniel is still injured. I heard that he had an operation to his groin. Thatâ€™s why Ayanda played in the game against Celtic,â€ a source is quoted by soccerladuma.
â€œIt was surprising to see him in the starting line-up because we thought Tshepo would play in Danielâ€™s absence.
But thatâ€™s football and you can never know whatâ€™s going to happen.â€
The Ghanaian international has been the clubâ€™s number one choice since he joined from Liberty Professionals.
