Nyatama will miss Bucs’ Nedbank Cup Last 32 match against Ajax Cape Town this weekend, as the midfielder will be serving a one-match suspension for his fourth yellow card of the season, picked up during last weekend’s 2-1 win for Bucs against Maritzburg United.

“Losing a player of Musa’s quality is a big blow. We knew about him being on the brink of suspension because he was sitting on three yellow cards.

“Having said that, we have been working hard with the group to incorporate the different players into our game model so that there isn’t too much change when we lose one or two players to injury or suspension,” Mokwena told Pirates’ official website.

“The club is rich with talented players and while we will miss Musa, we are also prepared as we have depth and quality in the midfield. There are adequate replacements that are capable of filling the void that Musa will leave. We have a plan, and we have an ace up our sleeve. This is the art of war,” explained Mokwena.
