The technical team of Milutin Sredojevic, Rhulani Mokwena and Benson Mhlongo are finalising the team’s preparations for their match against Ajax Cape Town in the Nedbank Cup. 

While Bucs have confirmed that Mpho Makola is unlikely to make the team for Saturday’s match, the club has confirmed that four other players have been receiving treatment for their respective injuries.

“Mpho Makola is doubtful for the cup clash tomorrow as he continues to receive treatment (for) a back injury. According to the Bucs Medical Team, it’s unlikely that the 31-year old will recover in time for the match,” Bucs stated on the club’s official website.

Furthermore, Bucs will be without the services of Musa Nyatama for the match, owing to suspension.

“The absence of both Nyatama and Makola is exacerbated by the injury to Abbubaker Mobara, who is also still undergoing rehabilitation with the Strength and Conditioning Team.

No big deal. Give other players a chance coach. Give Mulenga 15 minutes or so, we want to see if he's the real McCoy :))

Once again LieDuma ba phapha and posted a police picture of Wayne Roberts. But I see now after Roberts said he is suing anyone sharing it, the pic is removed. TOO LATE..but as usual this website will do anything for traffic and comments. Hope this also catches up and you are forced to publicly APOLOGISE...That's KARMA right there (preying on people's struggles for comments)
