Mamelodi Sundowns

Downs V Stellies Back On – Clarity On Sirino & Mobbie Eligibility

Mamelodi Sundowns’ game against Stellenbosch FC on 11 December will proceed as originally planned and the availability of two players will be affected by the game being reinstated including Downs’ top scorer and a loanee.

After a meeting between the two clubs this week, it was decided to play the game on the original date but to swap the home and away fixtures. That means that the game on the 11th will be held at Loftus Stadium as Sundowns’ home game.

This is to limit Downs’ travel burden as they will have a flight home from Morocco after their CAF Champions League match on Saturday.

The game was originally postponed due to PSL guidelines allowing teams playing in a cup final to have a week to prepare beforehand. Sundowns play the Telkom Knockout final on the 14th of December.

Both clubs were motivated to have the game played next week though for differing reasons. Stellenbosch would have had three full weeks without a game, whilst Sundowns would have seen star man Gaston Sirino miss the Telkom Knockout Final due to suspension for his red card against Golden Arrows on the 23rd of November.

Now that the game will go ahead, Sirino will return to face Maritzburg United at Moses Mabhida Stadium on the 14th, assuming there is no ruling over the player’s charge for assault after clashing with Clayton Daniels and Dean Furman in an MTN8 clash in September.

The other major news is that Sundowns will allow Nyiko Mobbie to face them, despite being on loan from Chloorkop. This goes against the decision they took in September to prevent Jeremy Brockie from playing against his parent club in the PSL for Maritzburg United.

Will Sirino make the difference in the TKO final? Will Mobbie prove a point when he faces Sundowns? Let us know by commenting below!
