Punto mk2 (2000 1.2 8v 5dr) Rear shock absorbers advice

I bought Rear Shock absorbers from ebay to replace my existing absorber as its leaking. Problem is that the shocks I got were advertised as metal cover but the ones I received are plastic cover (image below).
The existing shocks that are on the car are metal, I'm wondering if I can fit those plastic Rear shock absorbers as I canít be bothered to return them, maybe thereís no difference at all between plastic and metal cover?
Thanks

They will be fine for your car. The plastic/metal covers are only there to give protection to the shockers piston rod.

Thanks, I guess I'll keep them then.
