DURBAN, South Africa (AP) -South Africa is in danger of having just two fit strikers for its final group game against Morocco at the African Cup of Nations.

The host team was already without Lehlohonolo Majoro because of a gash to his left leg, while fellow forward Tokelo Rantie is now doubtful for Sunday's final round of Group A games with a twisted ankle.

South Africa says Rantie sat out training on Friday after hurting himself in the 2-0 win over Angola.

Bafana Bafana team doctor Carl Tabane says "we will treat him (Rantie) today and see how it goes'' as the home team's attacking options were diminished for a game it needs to take a point from to be certain of a place in the quarterfinals.

Morocco needs to win to qualify.
