Will Onyango's Absence Haunt The Yellow Nation?

Mamelodi Sundowns have a reputation for many things, most of them positive. They are an impressively professional club constantly geared towards one thing and one thing only… winning. Included in this structure is the goalkeeping department. The king of the sticks, Dennis Onyango, will be sitting out the Brazilians' match against AS Vita on Wednesday due to injury. How do the supporters feel about this crucial absence?

Sundowns have always tried to harbour the best goalkeeping talent in Mzansi – there was a time when they had Andre Arendse, Brian Baloyi, and Calvin Marlin, in no particular order, all of whom were Bafana Bafana keepers at one point in their careers.

Now, following the news that the ever-reliable Onyango will be absent from the crucial CAF African Champions League encounter against AS Vita, some supporters seem to not have as much faith in their reserves as they had in the past…

"Speedy recovery, Denis 'Hands of Stone' Onyango. Everyone in the Yellow Nation needs you, we want you to face AS Vitamins. Come on, Denis, you strong, brave and talented." – KBY10

"Downs needs you more than before....in you we trust....in Pitso we believe." – Jeff Mahnyahinga 

To be fair, the supporters' desire to have Onyango in goal is probably not because of a lack of faith in either Wayne Sandilands or Kennedy Mweene, but rather because those two are just not Hands of Stone Onyango…

Who would you prefer to see in goals tonight? Will Onyango's absence come back to haunt Downs?
