Three games take place this evening in South Africa’s top-flight as the race for the league title, a top eight spot and safety continues, with the biggest encounter seeing SuperSport United host the Amakhosi.
Kaitano Tembo suffered a blow as his captain, Dean Furman, was booked towards the end of Matsatsantsa’s victory over Free State Stars, meaning that he will miss the game against Chiefs as fifth battles seventh.
Meanwhile, Gavin Hunt finds himself in a similar situation following Thulani Hlatshwayo’s red card against AmaZulu, meaning that he will not be contention when they go up against Siwelele as they look to move back up to second place.
On Sunday, Owen de Gama will have to name a Highlands Park side that doesn’t include Lesenya Ramoraka or Siphiwe Mahlangu after their bookings against Baroka – they got six on the day in total – when they come up against relegation-battlers, Chippa.
Who do you think will be in the top three at the end of this weekend?
