Defensive Blow For SSU
Things have gone from bad to worse for Eric Tinkler and SuperSport United, with Morgan Gould now ruled out of this weekend’s crunch clash with Bidvest Wits.
The 34-year-old scored the opener and won Man of the Match for Matsatsantsa as they drew 1-1 with Polokwane City last night, a result that came as a blow to the side having led until the 95th minute.
Now, with Tefu Mashamaite injured, Tinkler is not flush for choices at the centre of defence as Gould sits out the game against Wits due to injury.
While Clayton Daniels is likely to start, the SuperSport coach will have to make a decision on whether it is Denwin Farmer or Azubuike Egwuekwe alongside him as his only options for the position.
SuperSport have now won just one of their last 11 games in the league, and have only four wins in their last 22 in all competitions, sitting in 11th place with 17 matches played.
Matsatsantsa face the Clever Boys on Saturday night as the two struggling clubs battle to get clear of the relegation zone.
