SuperSport United striker Bradley Grobler will miss this weekend’s Telkom Knockout clash with his contracted club, Ajax Cape Town.
The 25-year-old forward is currently in the middle of a long-term loan to Matsatsantsa from Cape Town, but he won’t be able to face up against the Urban Warriors, having picked up a knee injury.
The news will be a blow to Cavin Johnson, who is believed to be a big fan of the striker, and he may now have to rethink which attacking options he uses at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
While Grobler won’t feature in the TKO game, he is expected to available for selection when Matsatsantsa take on Maritzburg United towards the end of October.
In other injury news at the club, it looks like another former Ajax man, in George Maluleka, will also miss the encounter with an ankle niggle.
SuperSport and Ajax lock horns at 15h00 on Saturday afternoon as both sides look to make it through to the last eight of the tournament.
