PALAPYE: BR Highlanders will play their next game on Saturday against Ecco City Greens without top marksman Batisane Josiah, 24, who was attacked by a mysterious illness the previous Friday.

Apparently, Josiah, who is the team’s most prolific striker with six goals, fell sick immediately after their beMOBILE league game, which the two teams drew 1-1. He was rushed to the Selebi-Phikwe Primary Hospital where he was hospitalised for five days until his release on Wednesday, to the huge relief of players, teammates and supporters.  His coach, Tebogo Mokute confirmed that their marksman would not be available for their weekend game against Ecco City Greens. Mokute, however, said they would replace him with another capable marksman. 

Obviously, Mokute and his technical team would be banking on Salas Kemiso and Emmanuel Thakadu who has contributed five goals to the Mahalapye team’s goals tally.  “I can confirm that Josiah would not be available for our weekend game because he is still focusing on his health.”
