Tuks Trio Unlikely For City Game

University of Pretoria coach Steve Barker is putting last season’s misfortunes against Polokwane City behind them, going into the 2014/15 Absa Premiership season opener.

Tuks will face the Citizens in their first game of the season encounter in a home encounter this weekend and Barker is confident everything is going according to plan, despite some of his players having failed to receive their work permits on time.

Barker also said the Malawian forward Atusaye Nyondo and Zimbabwean duo of Denver Mukamba and Partson Jaure are unlikely to play in the weekend’s game.

“Yes our preparations are going well. Our players are all healthy and injury free despite the fact that we have one problem with the work permits for our foreign players. Jaure is here, he arrived yesterday but I’m not sure if he’s going to play as his papers are not sorted yet as well as Mukamba. I’m hopeful about Nyondo because he’s been with us for a while now but it looks unlikely for us to have Parson and Denver.

“Last season we didn’t do well against City but we had a good home record. We aim to keep the record going on and collect more points at home. We’ve put the misfortunes against them behind us and we’re prepared for the game,” said Barker.

Tuks lost their two league games to the Citizens last season and the Tshwane-based club will aim to change their fortunes as they host Rise and Shine at Tuks Stadium at 15:00.
