The Buccaneers will have to make do without the services of Mpho Makola for their clash with Bidvest Wits tomorrow night, a game that will be played behind closed doors after he picked up his fourth booking of the season.
Meanwhile, Pitso Mosimane will have to find a replacement for Gaston Sirino following his red card in the Nedbank Cup over the weekend, when the Brazilians come up against the same team, Maritzburg United, against whom he was sent off.
Sundowns could clinch the league title should Milutin Sredojevic’s side lose and Mosimane gets either a draw or a win, while Masandawana’s coach knows that a victory for his team will secure the league for themselves if Pirates drop any points.
Meanwhile, Ajax Cape Town, AmaZulu and Maritzburg will also have to deal with suspensions going into their midweek games, with Fagrie Lakay, Mbongeni Gumede and Rushine De Reuck all sitting out their matches.
