- Both Kaizer Chiefs’ Willard Katsande and Sphelele Mkhulise of Mamelodi Sundowns will have to be disciplined in their midweek games to avoid suspensions
With Kaizer Chiefs set to face Mamelodi Sundowns in the DStv Premiership next weekend, two players are set to miss the big clash. Amakhosi could be without Willard Katsande, who is sitting on the verge of being suspended for the mega clash at Loftus Versfeld Stadium.
The Zimbabwe international is on the suspension tight-rope ahead of their visit to Tshwane on the weekend and will look to maintain his cool should he feature against Cape Town City in their midweek game.
While they will face the Mother City outfit on Wednesday afternoon in the league at home at 5pm, it remains to be seen if coach Gavin Hunt will use the experienced midfielder against the Citizens.
Amakhosi have 25 points at number nine on the table and are fresh from a 1-1- draw against Baroka, whom they faced last week. On the part of the Brazilians, Sundowns will be gunning for a win as they visit AmaZulu in Durban on Wednesday afternoon at3pm.
Coach Manqoba Mngqithi’s troops are fresh from a loss in the Nedbank Cup against Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila as they failed to reach the final.
Coming back to the league, they will be hoping to bag the full three points and stretch their lead at the summit of the log table.
Sundowns have 46 points at the top of the table, however, are on the verge of missing the nippy midfielder, Sphelele Mkhulise, who sits one yellow card short of missing their clash at Loftus Versfeld scheduled for Sunday afternoon.
Meanwhile, Briefly News reported that Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune was receiving good reviews on social media after producing a superb save in their draw against AC Horoya last weekend.
Dubbed as Amakhosi's number one and finest, Khune took to his social media account to share a video clip of his acrobatic skills between the goalposts.
Coach Hunt led his crippled squad owing to injuries to a CAF Champions League encounter against the side from Guinea away from home where they secured a vital 2-2 draw.
