2 Suspended For Crucial Pirates Clash

Two players are suspended for this weekend’s two DStv Premiership matches, with both players out for Sunday’s match between TS Galaxy and Orlando Pirates.

Swallows host newly-crowned champions Mamelodi Sundowns at the Dobsonville Stadium on Saturday at 5pm, but no players will miss that game due to suspension.

However two players will miss Sunday’s match at the Mbombela Stadium between Galaxy and Pirates.

Ben Motshwari is out for Pirates, while Bathusi Aubaas will sit out for Galaxy.

Both teams are in their own race at the moment, with Pirates still hoping to finish as high as second. But to do this they will need to win their remaining three games, and hope AmaZulu slip up in one of their outstanding two matches.

But it will not be that simple on Sunday, as Owen Da Gama’s men are currently ninth, and in a battle for a top eight spot.

Victory on Sunday for Galaxy could put them in the driving seat for that race. They are currently one point behind eighth-placed Baroka, with Sunday’s game in hand.
