Head coach Rulani Mokwena has confirmed that midfielder, Haashim Domingo among others have been ruled out due to injry.

"Just a long-term situation with Abdel (Boutouil), (Abubeker) Nassir and Terrence Mashego, and everybody slowly but surely is making their way back to training.

"Zungu is slowly coming back to training, but not available for match selection of course, but back at training, he is on the pitch.

"Rivaldo Coetzee is on the pitch, but Haashim is not yet, he suffered something just before SuperSport United match, so no Haashim.


"A slight niggle from Gaston Sirino picked up against SuperSport, but not something big. So not too many issues fortunately from the injury perspective," said Mokwena.

Kick-off is at 20:00.
