With the CAF Confederation Cup in full swing, Mandla Ncikazi and Fadlu Davids have been forced to rotate players for both the continental competition and the DStv Premiership due to injuries, while some of the players are not registered for CAF.

Following their 0-0 draw against Maritzburg United on Wednesday, Bucs are now in 6th place on the log, with the team set to face high-flying Royal AM, Sekhukhune United and Kaizer Chiefs in the first Soweto Derby of the season in their next three matches.

Against the Team of Choice, team captain Happy Jele became the latest player to pick up a third yellow card of the season, which means that he is also at risk of getting suspended for the upcoming matches, should he pick up his fourth caution.

In getting on three yellow cards, Jele has joined Abel Mabaso who has been impressive this season, as well as Bafana Bafana midfielder Goodman Mosele.
