Captain Omar Colley is set to miss The Gambia’s 2017 African Cup of Nations qualifiers away to Cameroon on 3 September 2016, in Limbe.

Colley, who signed for Belgium side Genk recently from Swedish side Djurgarden, is set to miss the crunch clash against the Indomitable Lions after receiving two yellow cards.

Colley was featured three games for The Gambia in the qualifiers and played crucial part in the Scorpions defence line.

Colley’s absence would render a massive blow for coach Sang Ndong, who will be searching for replacement for the former Wallidan and Real De Banjul defender in the heart of the Scorpions defence against the Indomitable Lions next month.

Coach Ndong will welcome the return of striker Mustapha Carayol, Modou Secka Barrow and midfielder Tijan Jaiteh, who missed the tie against South Africa in June 2016 due to injuries and fitness problems.
