Barker: Downs Have Unfair Advantage

Mpumalanga Black Aces coach Clive Barker says the loan agreement between his team and Mamelodi Sundowns that would see three of his players unable to play tonight, gives Downs an unfair advantage over his team.

Aces will be without Abel Mabaso, Method Mwanjali and Themba Zwane when they take on Sundowns tonight because according to a loan agreement between the two clubs, they cannot play against the Brazilians.

“I thought in the interest of sport, Sundowns should have allowed us to use these players against them. Because you can’t have a competition that can be decided by the opposition determining whether or not you can use certain players, when they were not even going to use the player from the beginning, ” Barker told the Siya crew.

“I just think this whole thing should be revisited. I think it shouldn’t be allowed because as it is now, it is favouring certain clubs and this case Sundowns. When a club loans you players then it must be prepared to play against them,” added Barker.

Barker is confident though that Aces could still come up with a squad that is capable of upsetting Sundowns tonight.

“I think we can still put out up a good side that will give Sundowns a run for their money. Tonight’s game is important for us because if we get a point or three, then we’ll be well on course to finish high upon the log standings,” concluded Barker.

Sundowns and Aces will meet at Loftus Stadium tonight.
