WHAT HE SAID: "Keagan Dolly just played his first 45 minutes when we played a friendly," Ntseki told the media.

"I think we all know what type of injury he sustained. It’s not going to be just a quick return to play.

"I think he’s still going through his ‘back-to-play’ protocol – tactically and physically. But I think mentally he’s very strong, he looks sharp in terms of his tactical understanding of the game.

"Hopefully in the next week or so, he will be available for selection."

AND WHAT IS MORE: Ntseki further painted a vivid picture of the injury situation at the Naturena, "A few have them have started training with the team, but those who had a long a layoff, they still have to recover in terms of physical readiness," the tactician continued.

"But tactically we have got good quality players. The only thing that is very important is for them to learn to have the right combination, and the right physical readiness going into the next matches.

"But I must say it’s positive to have the full squad back in training and having that headache the best team to go into camp and play matches," the former Bafana Bafana coach concluded.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Dolly, who has scored 12 goals and provided four assists for Amakhosi, might make his comeback on either September 20 or 23 against SuperSport or Mamelodi Sundowns respectively.

WHAT NEXT: Dolly has to work on his match fitness to ensure he is ready to meet the Glamour Boys' demands.
