Injury has sidelined Zambia midfielder Rainford Kalaba from TP Mazembe’s Sunday evening 2016 CAF Confederation Cup Group A clash away to MO Bejaia of Algeria.
Kalaba will miss the match in Bejaia after sustaining a torn thigh muscle injury.
“My hope is that I heal a little faster, but recovery is progressing well,” Kalaba told TP Mazembe’s official website.
However, his compatriots Nathan Sinkala, Kabaso Chongo and Jonas Sakuwaha have made trip for the top two Group A clash.
Mazembe lead Group A on 6 points, two more than Bejaia while Medeama of Ghana and Tanzanian club Young Africans are 3rd and 4th on 2 and 1 point respectively after drawing 1-1 in Dar es Salaam on Saturday.
Zambia goalkeeper Kennedy Mweene has been declared fit after injury saw him miss South African champions Mamelodi Sundowns’ 2-1 CAF Champions League Group B home win over Enyimba of Nigeria on June 29.
Mweene is part of the travelling part to Egypt to face Zamalek on Sunday evening at Kattameya.
Emmanuel Mayuka is expected to make the Zamalek team to face Sundowns.
Sundowns lead Group B on 3 points tied with 2nd placed Zamalek.
