The Orlando Pirates left-back was named in the starting line-up, but an injury sustained in training means he will miss out.

Bafana media liaison Matlhomola Morake tweeted: “Matlaba sustained an Achilles tendon injury at training. Failed late fitness test this morning.” 

Sibusiso Khumalo is set to replace Matlaba at left-back.
