Lebo Mothiba is set to play his first competitive game of 2019 after the South Africa international forward was named in the RC Strasbourg Alsace squad to face AS Monaco on Saturday.

Mothiba, who has scored a team-high seven Ligue 1 Conforama goals since his summer move from LOSC Lille, has missed all three of his club's outings since the turn of the year with a knee injury.

But the 22-year-old was included when Strasbourg boss Thierry Laurey named the party that will be looking for a third successive league win — and a sixth in all competitions — in the principality to try and force their way into the top five.
