Chiefs To Miss Key Player Vs Rockets

DStv Premiership Match day 27 sees seven players missing the midweek action following suspension.

Kaizer Chiefs defender Given Msimango will miss the clash against his former club TS Galaxy after receiving a straight red card in the 5-1 defeat to Mamelodi Sundowns at FNB Stadium. Meanwhile, the Rockets will miss Orebotse Mongae after his red card following a dangerous tackle on Bongani Zungu.

Relegation-threatened Richards Bay will be without their key man Sanele Barns when they face Polokwane City on Wednesday evening after the midfielder received his fourth yellow card in the 2-1 will against AmaZulu FC.

Nedbank Cup semi-finalists Chippa United will face Orlando Pirates for a second time in a space of five days, but will be without tall striker Bienvenu Eva Nga, who received a red card at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Saturday. Craig Martin received his fourth yellow, meaning he is also out of the clash on Wednesday.

Usuthu look to secure their status but they will have to do it without Celimpilo Ngema and Abbubaker Mobara. Ngema received his fourth yellow card in the 2-1 loss to Bay, while Mobara is still serving the red card suspension from his sending off against Chippa United.
