Bafana Bafana captain Thulani Hlatswayo is likely to miss Friday evening’s 2018 Fifa World Cup qualifier against Senegal.

The defender is suffering a toe injury and it does not seem to be getting better.

Coach Stuart Baxter does not want to take a risk with the player.

“Tyson looks like he is going to struggle with this one and we are not going to take any chances. I think we need to be sure that we are not going to have a player that is going to come off after five minutes, so we are doubtful at this point that Tyson will take part.”
