Bandari have been plagued by injuries ahead of the resumption of the Football Kenya Federation Premier League matches this weekend.

The club has announced that two of their players have undergone surgeries with a third one expected to go under the knife on Friday afternoon.

Versatile player Shariff Majabe was operated on his knee on Wednesday at the Aga Khan hospital and is expected to be out for a couple of months.

Majabe who predominantly plays as a defensive midfielder and can slot at the heart of the defence joined the dockers in the off-season transfer window from National Super League side Mombasa Elite.

Majabe picked the injury during their 2-1 win over league returnees Shabana earlier this month at the Mbaraki Grounds. 

Left back Mohamed Siraj also faced the surgeon's knife on Wednesday after suffering an ankle injury that is expected to sideline him for a number of weeks.

 

The club that is expected to host Talanta this weekend also announced that forward Beja Nyamawi will be wheeled to the threatre on Friday for a knee surgery. 

Nyamawi was the National Super League top scorer last season with SS Assad and joined Bandari in the past transfer window.

The unavailability of the three players leaves coach John Baraza short of options especially in the defence and midfield as both Majabe and Siraj have proven themselves in the two departments. 

Last season, Bandari lost the duo of Boniface Mwangemi and Mohamed Abeid to long term injuries that necessitated surgeries. 

Abeid has since resumed training while Mwangemi is still undergoing rehabilitation.
