Hammer Blow As SSU Star Misses Tshwane Derby
SuperSport United's Aubrey Modiba Is Suspended Against Mamelodi Sundowns
Eric Tinkler has been dealt a big blow this weekend due to the suspension of Aubrey Modiba, with the attacker missing the Tshwane Derby against Mamelodi Sundowns.
Modiba, who has arguably been SuperSport United's best player this season, picked up his fourth yellow card of the campaign in the 0-0 draw with Platinum Stars earlier this week, and will now sit out the clash against Masandawana on Saturday evening.
The 22-year-old has six goals and three assists in the Absa Premiership this season - directly contributing to nearly 50% of SuperSport's 19 goals - but they will have to find inspiration from somebody else this weekend if they're to pick up their first league win over Sundowns since 2013.
Meanwhile, Pitso Mosimane will be back on the bench for his side having served his suspension and has no suspension concerns for his players ahead of the upcoming clash in Pretoria.
The two sides are set to lock horns on Saturday at 18h00.
