ASC Linguere goalkeeper Modou Jobe has recovered from a troubling ankle injury that kept him out of action for a week.
The Gambian international is expected to return to Linguere starting line-up ahead of the league match against Guediawaye on Sunday. The former Real de Banjul goalkeeper was forced to watch Linguere last league match on the sideline after limping off the pitch in agony during a warm-up session at the club’s training centre last month.
It was initially feared Jobe was set for a lengthy spell on the sideline but the former Armed Forces gloves man has confirmed the injury is not as serious as reported.
He has since started light training with team mates a week ago, and believes he’s fully ready to make a weekend comeback when Linguere host Duediawaye, at Mamad Wade Stadium this Sunday.
“I’ve picked up an ankle injury in training and missed our game with Stade Mbour last Saturday. I have started light training since last week and I’m ready to play this Sunday”, said Jobe who featured in most of Linguere’s league matches as a regular this season.
Linguere sits third from bottom in the 14 team league standings and will be hoping to beat Guediawaye to keep their battle for relegation survival back on tract with only few games remaining.
The club has dropped to 11 place in the Senegalese League table with 21 points while Guediawaye sits 4th place with 30 points.
Jobe has been a reported target for several top clubs since his summer transfer to Linguere from Niarry Tally.
He has signed a two year deal with the Senegalese giants until 2018.
