Mobara And Makola On Suspension Tightrope Ahead Of Nedbank Last 32

Orlando Pirates star midfielders Abbubaker Mobara and Terence Makola are walking a suspension tightrope as both players are on three yellow cards each.

Milutin Sredojević will risk both his star men should he decide to play them when his charges take on Ajax Cape Town in a last 32 Nedbank Cup encounter on Saturday night. 

Mobara and Makola are both on three yellow cards each and a fourth will result in a one-match ban.

Though Makola featured in Pirates’ league game against the Urban Warriors last week he was substituted in the 36th minute. Both players did not feature for the Soweto giants when they bounced back for to winning ways beating Maritzburg United by 2-1.

Meanwhile, other players such as attackers Thabiso Kutumela, and Bernard Morrison will also have to be wary in the encounter as they are on two yellow cards each. Bucs’ number goalkeeper Jackson Mabokgwane is also on two yellow cards heading into the cup clash. 

Pirates will look to get their hands on what will be a third Nedbank Cup title should they overcome Ajax and proceed all the way and win the Nedbank Cup 2017/18 edition.
