Defender Awal Mohammed is likely to miss the Black Stars B Championship of African Nations qualifier against Burkina Faso this weekend.
The center-back is reported to have picked up malaria in camp hence likely to be excluded from the squad.
The Kotoko defender who is the deputy skipper was expected to start for the team in Sunday’s clash at the Babayara Sports Stadium.
Coach Kwesi Appiah still has defensive options in the likes of Samuel Sarfo, Musah Nuhu, Vincent Atinga and Ahmed Adams who could fit in for Awal.
He featured for Kotoko in Wednesday’s FA Cup victory over Nea Salamina.
The Black Stars B team are still in camp preparing for the game.
