Mamelodi Sundowns’ defenders Mosa Lebusa, Rivaldo Coetzee and Ricardo Nascimento will not take part in the Absa Premiership clash with Baroka FC at Lucas Moripe Stadium on Tuesday.
Lebusa is suffering from flu but is also suspended for the clash.
The technical team thought there was a major boost when Ricardo Nascimento looked to have recovered his from injury.
Nascimento completed training on Monday but complained of slight pain and will be sidelined for this match as the team will not take any chances. Rivaldo Coetzee was unfortunate to get a knock at training and will also miss the match.
Thokozani Sekotlong and Soumahoro Bangaly will remain on the sidelines. Swelling on Sekotlong’s ankle has subsided but he is still receiving treatment. Bangaly is nursing his heel and Achilles tendon. George Lebese is much better and is now training after being sidelined by a knee injury.
Despite that, coach Pitso Mosimane still has a good squad to field against the recently crowned Telkom Knockout champions. A win over Bakgaga will take Sundowns to the top of the log.
