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.
