Tinkler Promotes Another Youngster
Eric Tinkler could hand out another SuperSport United debut tomorrow, with young Darren Smith having been promoted and put straight into the matchday squad.
The 21-year-old joined SuperSport earlier this year following Santos’ relegation out of the National First Division and has proven to be a hit for Matsatsantsa in the Multichoice Diski Challenge so far.
According to Siya sources, Smith has been named in the squad for SuperSport’s clash with Bloemfontein Celtic tomorrow evening, and while he is unlikely to start he could make his debut as the club look to try and get back to winning ways.
The Siya crew has been informed that the youngster has been training with SuperSport’s first team for around a week, and seemingly impressed Tinkler during his tie with the senior squad.
Meanwhile, Aubrey Modiba is set to return to the left back position in the absence of the suspended Richard Kissi Boateng.
