Kamuzu Barracks midfielder Harvey Nkacha will miss the entire of the first round Super League action after worsening an injury he sustained during pre-season games.
Nkacha got injured during a pre-season Malawi Defence Force bonanza game against Airborne Rangers and has since not played this season.
The lanky midfielder told Nyasa Times that the first doctor told him that it was not serious as it was a soft tissue injury.
But the former Zomba United player was told of the fracture injury by another doctor after the first treatment did not help him as it kept him feeling the pain.
“The first doctor examined me at Kamuzu Central Hospital and he told me that it was just soft tissue injury and advised me to stay for three weeks without playing football after he applied to my right leg ankle in light Plaster of Paris (POP),” Nkacha said.
“After three weeks I started light training but was still feeling pain.”
He said after two months Kamuzu Barracks team doctor recommended another examination which confirmed that he sustained a fracture injury.
“Our team doctor who was in South Africa examined me again and found out that there was a minor fracture on my right tibia/fibula and had to put another [heavy] POP at Kamuzu Barracks Hospital,” he said.
He has not played any game this season and is likely to miss a good part of the whole season.
Nkacha joined Silver Strikers from Zomba United for a K800,000 transfer fee but moved to Kamuzu Barracks lured by job prospects.
