Five Absa Premiership players will be forced to watch this week’s midweek games from the sidelines after picking up suspensions.
Bidvest Wits, Cape Town City, Free State Stars and Platinum Stars will all be affected by suspensions as they prepare for their games on Tuesday and Wednesday night.
The Clever Boys will have to find someone to take Sifiso Hlanti’s spot at left back when they take on Free State Stars in a must-win game in Bethlehem, while their title rivals, City, will be without both Aubrey Ngoma and Robyn Johannes against SuperSport United.
Meanwhile, Sphamandla Mlilo’s ban continues after his third red card of the season, he misses Dikwena’s clashes with Maritzburg United, Platinum Stars and Matsatsantsa and he will play no further part for Cavin Johnson.
Lastly, Nhlanhla Vilakazi is out of contention after his yellow card against the Citizens and will miss Ea Lla Koto’s clash with Wits at Goble Park.
