Ghana defender Awal Mohammed suffered a thigh injury during Maritzburg United’s 1-1 draw with Kaizer Chiefs on Wednesday night.
The 25-year-old had to be replaced in the 72nd minute by Ryan De Jongh after complaining of pains in his thigh.
Maritzburg had taken the lead through Mario Booyson just three minutes after recess.
Chiefs however capitalized on Mohammed’s struggle with the thigh strain to equalize in the 70th minute through Eric Mathoho.
The Ghana international had to be then replaced two minutes later with coach Ernst Middendorp deciding he has seen enough of his center half’s struggle.
Mohammed’s injury will be further examined to determine its severity and how long he will be out for.
United held on thereafter to claim an important away point to help push them to 6th in the South African top flight.
