Kaizer Chiefs attacker, Matthew Rusike, will be missing when the Amakhosi take on Raja Casablanca next month, after picking up two yellow cards against Township Rollers.
The 24-year-old, who scored in the first leg of the tie and grabbed an assist in the second leg, was booked once in each encounter as the Glamour Boys ran out 3-1 winners in the CAF Champions League, meaning that he now faces a one-game suspension.
Rusike’s booking means that he will be forced to miss the home leg of Chiefs’ clash with the Moroccan giants, news that will certainly come as a blow to head coach, Stuart Baxter.
The Zimbabwean has been one of the Amakhosi’s best performers in the CAF Champions League over the past two seasons despite his limited domestic game time, and Baxter will no doubt have been hoping to use him in some capacity against the Moroccan champions.
Chiefs host Raja on the weekend of 13-15 March, before travelling to Casablanca for the away leg in the first week of April.
