Pirates/SuperSport Fixture Postponed
SuperSport United's Game With Orlando Pirates Has Been Postponed
SuperSport United’s clash with Orlando Pirates next week has been postponed due to Matsatsantsa’ CAF Confederation Cup commitments.
Matsatsantsa will come up against Kenya’s Gor Mahia next weekend in the first leg of their play-off round encounter in the CCC, with the two teams locking horns for a spot in the group stages of the competition.
SuperSport had been scheduled to take on Pirates in a crucial Absa Premiership game on Saturday at Mbombela Stadium, but the club has now confirmed that the match will not be going ahead in Mpumalanga.
It has confirmed to the Siya crew that game between SuperSport and Pirates has been postponed, although new date has not yet been set by the Premier Soccer League.
SuperSport went all the way to the final in last year’s edition of the CCC, before losing to Congolese giants, TP Mazembe, in the final.
This time around, with Kaitano Tembo currently as interim coach, they will be hoping to go one step further and get their hands on the trophy later in the year.
Meanwhile, Bidvest Wits' encounter with Ajax Cape Town is also expected to be postponed as they prepare to face Enyimba of Nigeria.
