Bafana Bafana midfielder Kagisho Dikgacoi continued his fine run of form for Crystal Palace on Tuesday
The midfielder netted his fourth goal in six starts this season in the 1-1 draw with Nottingham Forest at Selhurst Park with a thumping header from a corner kick at the start of the second half.
But just 15 minutes later he was involved in a sickening clash of heads and had to leave the pitch on a stretcher. He was taken to hospital as a precaution, but will be released on Wednesday.
There was still no sign of Bafana Bafana forward Davide Somma for Leeds United as they suffered a 3-2 home loss to Hull City.
Somma has been missing since July 2011 with a knee injury, but there had been hopes he would return to training this month.
That certainly looks unlikely and the longer he spends on the sidelines, the more the worries will grow for his career.
Kgosi Ntlhe was in action for Peterborough United as they succumbed to a seventh-straight defeat in all competitions with a 2-1 loss at home to Bristol City.
The 18-year-old left-back, who was called-up for the internationals against Brazil and Mozambique recently but did not play, had missed the weekend loss to Burnley after being rested.
Meanwhile in League One, Dean Furman played for Oldham Athletic as they were held to a 1-1 draw by lowly Scunthorpe to continue their below-par start to the campaign.
And in the UEFA Champions League, Bafana playmaker Thulani Serero had to settle for a place on the bench after he was left out of the Ajax Amsterdam side that lost 1-0 at Borussia Dortmund.
