Thamsanqa Gabuza of Orlando Pirates, along with Maritzburg United’s star midfielder Siphesihle Ndlovu and Chippa United’s Thamsanqa Sangweni, will all be sidelined this weekend due to respective disciplinary cautions.
Pirates’ Gabuza was red-carded for his outburst against Black Leopards, United’s Ndlovu for a career-threatening tackle on Kaizer Chiefs’ Siyabonga Ngezana, while Chippa’s Sangweni will be missing after he collected yellow cards in three consecutive games.
“Three players are suspended with this weekend’s Absa Premiership fixtures:
Thamsanqa Gabuza (Orlando Pirates)
Thamsanqa Sangweni (Chippa United)
Siphesihle Ndlovu (Maritzburg United),” confirmed the PSL in a statement.
Gabuza will serve the first of a two-match ban, Ndlovu two of three and Sangweni is serving just a single match.
Gabuza will miss the match against Supersport United on Saturday, as well as Cape Town City’s visit to Orlando next Wednesday.
Maritzburg will be without Ndlovu for its huge clash against Bidvest Wits in Pietermaritzburg and then again when they travel to Bloemfontein to face Celtic on Sunday, 23 September 2018. Ndlovu’s unavailability will be felt even more after the club announced that one of its other key midfield players, Keagan Buchanan, has suffered an injury.
“It’s a blow for us to lose him. It happened at training, will have a scan today to determine extent of the injury. But it’s definitely an ACL, maybe not a complete rupture, either grade 2 or 3, which will put him out for a couple of months,” said coach Fadlu Davids
New Chippa United coach, Eric Tinkler only has the home game against Baroka FC on Saturday to worry about not having Sangweni available.
