Mamelodi Sundowns will be without Denis Onyango for Black Leopards clash


The Ugandan international has a shoulder injury he sustained in the 3-1 victory over Ivorian side ASEC Mimosas in the CAF Champions League last Friday.

Former Ajax Cape Town defender Mosa Lebusa is set to miss out tonight as well, as he nurses a groin problem.

Downs coach Pitso Mosimane, though, will not be too worried with the absence of these players. Kennedy Mweene is likely to start ahead of Reyaad Pieterse in goal tonight, while Pitso Mosimane can call on the likes of Motjeka Madisha and Rivaldo Coetzee to play in place of Lebusa.

Sundowns, who are in third place, go into the game six points behind Absa Premiership leaders and know that a victory would put the in a much better position to get their hands on the title for a second consecutive campaign.
