Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Rulani Mokwena could face more headaches in terms of his team's selection when the Brazilians travel to Soweto to meet Orlando Pirates in the DStv premiership match on Saturday.

Mokwena started with both Dennis Onyango and Andile in goals and midfield respectively in their last two games against TS Galaxy and Sekhukhune United last week.

Onyango only conceded once against Galaxy in Mbombela last week Tuesday.

Both the Ugandan keeper and Jali replaced Ronwen Williams and Tebeho Mokwena who have been a regular feature in the Brazilians' line-up this season.

Mokoena and Williams who are both in Bafana Bafana are expected to be back in contention for starting line-up when Masandawana takes on the Mighty Buccaneers in the league match at the Orlando Stadium on Saturday.

The Brazilians coach also gave Bongani Zulu a few minutes during the 2-1 victory against Sekhukhune United which he described as a rotation system in a post-match in Tshwane on Saturday.

"It’s just rotation and giving others a fair chance also which I think they have done well. AJ has been superb in the last two games," said Mokwena.

"Zungu had some very good minutes for him to build him and he has had very good possibilities and of course, Dennis Onyango is Dennis Onyango and he has been in that space and it also allows you to have Kennedy on the bench and to have Reyaad on the bench and be part of the group," he added.
