Lechantre's side have looked much more secure with the goalkeeper in the team, and he'll be missed against a battling Djibouti side

Simba goalkeeper Aishi Manula will miss the team's clash with Gendarmerie due to an ankle problem.

News of the issue came via Saleh Jembe Bolg although it was noted the injury is not a serious one.

It's a big blow for the Msimbazi outfit in the short-term, as they will also be without the injured John Bocco in the pitch.

Manula has been a key man in Pierre Lechantre's Simba side, offering a commanding presence at the base of the team.

He's undoubtedly one of the best stoppers in Africa at this point in time.

Manula is authoritative when coming off his line, is improving in his distribution and uses his rangy build to stunning effect at times, getting his hands to shots that he has no right to save.

Lechantre's side have looked much more secure with the goalkeeper underpinning the team, and he'll be missed against a battling Djibouti side.
