Eric Tinkler has good and bad news going into this weekend’s crucial MTN8 semi-final against Maritzburg United, with new players available and others not.

Matsatsantsa needs to score against the Team of Choice after drawing the first leg at home 1-1, with a 0-0 being enough for Fadlu Davids’ team to progress on the away goal rule.

Tinkler has received a boost as Azubuike Egwuekwe was given the go-ahead to make his debut after receiving his work permit, while Sifiso Myeni could also debut for the side following his loan move from Bidvest Wits.

Meanwhile, Jeremy Brockie is in line to make a return after the transfer saga that ensued during the recent window and is taking aim at Abram Raselemane’s 57-goal club record. He’s currently on 49 in two and a half seasons.

However, Thabo Mnyamane – who hasn’t played since last month – is still doubtful and won’t be there to help SuperSport’s attack as they chase goals at Harry Gwala.

The game is due to get underway at 20h15.
