Linda ‘Figo’ Mntambo remains a major doubt for the Absa Premiership encounter against Orlando Pirates this coming weekend after sustaining an injury against Baroka FC last Saturday in Polokwane.

The Chilli Boys were forced to finish the game with 10 men as Mntambo was stretched off the field in the 78th minute.

Statement from Chippa United Medical Team read as follows; “Mntambo sustained a calf strain in the match against Baroka on Saturday where he was stretched off. He will receive treatment throughout the week and undergo a late fitness test on Thursday or Friday,”

Mntambo has been on superb form since joining the Chilli Boys in January scoring goals and collecting three Man of the Match awards.
