Moroka Swallows will be without influential midfielder and stand-in captain, Lerato Chabangu, when they take on Wits in an Absa Premiership match tonight.
Chabangu, together with defender Luvhengo Mungomeni and midfielder Asavela Mbekile are all suspended for this match.
Mungomeni received a red card during Swallows’ 2-1 loss to Mamelodi Sundowns last Sunday, while Chabangu and Mbekile got their fourth bookings from the same match.
Swallows’ General Manager and Supporters Director, Sipho Xulu, confirmed to the Siya crew that the trio will miss the Wits clash.
“Yes, we’ll be without Lerato, Asavela and Luvhengo in tonight’s game against Wits. As you know, we also have Lefa Tsutsulupa, Tshwarelo Bereng and Gift Mapemba out injured as well. We have a depleted squad going into the Wits game, but we’ll do our best to win the game,” Xulu told the crew.
Meanwhile, Xulu revealed to the crew that striker Siyabonga Nomvethe might play in tonight’s game even though he has not fully recovered from the head injury he sustained in the Sundowns clash.
“Bhele will wear the head gear for protection, but I’m not sure at this stage if he will start the game or not,” commented Xulu.
The clash will take place at the Dobsonville Stadium tonight at 19h30.
