South Africa coach  Stuart Baxter has called Cape Town City defender Thamsanqa Mkhize and Orlando Pirates’ Thembinkosi Lorch to replace the injured duo of Thapelo Morena (Mamelodi Sundowns) and Vincent Pule (Orlando Pirates) .

Pule and Morena who were injured at the weekend were released on Monday after medical reports proved that they would not be fit enough to play for South Africa in their upcoming 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifier against Seychelles

South Africa will  play Seychelles on Saturday at the FNB Stadium   at 3pm  and  leave for the Indian Ocean Island the following day on Sunday for the return game on Tuesday,  October 16

After  defeating West Africa giants, Nigeria 2-0  in their first match and drawing 0-0 with Libya at Moses Mabhida Stadium last month,  South Africa have four points and hope to add Seychelles to their victims to  increase their points build ups in  Group E where they are second.
