The Mother City-based side will have to do without the services of both Putsche and Nodada in their remaining matches of the season

Roland Putsche and Thabo Nodada have both been ruled of action for the remainder of the season, Cape Town City confirmed on Tuesday. 

According to the club, the two midfielders suffered injuries during the team's 3-0 win over Highlands Park last week. 

Putsche suffered a meniscus tear, while Nodada is nursing a right leg fracture. Both players are on crutches.

The Citizens took to their social media platforms to announce the news which will certainly shock the majority of their fans given the pair's contributions to the club's success in recent years. 

Benni McCarthy will have to find replacements for the two players, especially with City still very much in the PSL title race and also campaigning in the Nedbank Cup.

Nodada has featured in 22 matches across all competitions this season while scoring once and grabbing three assists. 

Putsche, on the other hand, was indirectly involved in six goals from the 20 matches that he played - four goals and two assists. 

Next up for Cape Town City is Maritzburg United, who are rooted at the bottom of the log with just over 10 games to go before the end of the season.
