Medo & Dumbuya out of Leone Stars/Swaziland clash

By Sahr Morris Jnr.

Bolton Wanderers midfielder, Mohamed ‘Medo’ Kamara and Notts County full-back, Mustapha Dumbuya will both miss Sierra Leone national team, Leone Stars’ 2015 AFCON first round qualifying match against the Sihlangu of Swaziland.

Kamara has missed Bolton’s four final league matches since pulling out of the Barnsley game with a stomach complaint, and Wanderers coach Dougie Freedman earlier said the problem proved more severe than first thought.

“Medo has got something wrong in his stomach, he’s not digesting his food right and it’s causing him pain,” Freedman had told journalists in England.

Elsewhere, Mustapha Dumbuya – who had 73 minutes action for Notts County in their final league match against Oldham – is expected to undergo surgery later this week and that has ruled him out of the May 17 clash with Swaziland.

Another star to miss the qualifiers is Bursaspor striker Ibrahim ‘Teteh’ Bangura. The striker, who is on-loan to Swedish outfit AIK, is still recovering from knee surgery.

However, there is positive news for coach Johnny Mackinstry as Middleborough striker, Kei Kamara will be available for selection. The striker recently underwent hernia operation but returned to Boro’s training before the end of the English Championship league season.
