Injury Concerns For Downs

Mamelodi Sundowns take on Baroka FC in a highly crucial Absa Premiership league encounter with a possibility of five players out on injury.

There were as many as four casualties in the Caf Champions League quarterfinal away clash against Al Ahly. Denis Onyango was in the war-zone and is still recovering from bashes and bruises he picked up against the Egyptian giants.

High flying versatile player Thapelo Morena will be subjected to a late fitness test, this after he sustained a knock which resulted in a nasty leg contusion.

Lebohang Maboe was diagnosed with acute tonsillitis after the clash, while Oupa Manyisa suffered a left ankle sprain. The dou also only resumed full training on Friday and will undergo late fitness tests to determine their readiness for the clash.

Gaston Sirino is still recovering from the right leg contusion and is highly unlikely to take to the field as ‘The Brazilians’ aim to claw their way back to the top.

    We are not feeling any pressure now I think the pressure is on Pirates to remain on top till the end thina nje siyanyonyoba like a cat or tiger wanting to catch its prey,that match will be shown later at 22:45 on SS4 those who got Explora will record it and watch it later nobody can stay up until that time really for a match that was played long time ago.
    Supersport has got many sport channels I wonder why they didn’t shown it live because the league is bigger than the domestic trophies or its just because the most hated team in SA by the name of Downs that were playing,Kby forever

    It was good to put pressure on OP, however the less said about MWeene the better. I don’t want to sound like am not supporting the dude but at times effort makes you one to support…I saw the header the SSU scored time and time again and am.wonderinf if he attempted to catch the ball perhaps we would be talking something different. You can’t always watch the ball goes to the net without attempting. It happened to the same player on Cape town city and now Supersport. I won’t blame him for the mistake that he did against baroka but these things at times follow you. Just saying….

    From now on if Mweene is between the poles let’s try to score many goals as possible because we can see that guy is overconfident even Riyaad Pieterse is much better than him,every game he will concede one or two goals even that first goal of SSU he watch it and stay on his posts instead of attacking the ball hope his contract is coming to an end soon sesibongile uyena akahambe.Those goals we are busy conceding will apply come the end of the season,Kby forever

    foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
    My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
    I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
