Kaizer Chiefs and Pirates players facing suspension

Five Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates players are walking a suspension tightrope ahead of the latest round of PSL action.

Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates players risking suspension

Orlando Pirates face off against Polokwane City on Friday 27 October with kickoff at 19:30. Key duo Zakhele Lepasa and Thabang Monare have both accumulated three bookings this season. If either gets shown a yellow card against Polokwane, they’ll miss the team’s trip to Cape Town Spurs on the 1st of November. Perhaps that’s a good game for them to get a breather though?

Johnson is at the wheel

Meanwhile, a new era at Kaizer Chiefs is upon us with interim boss Cavin Johnson desperate for three points away at the in-form Golden Arrows. Pule Mmodi, Sibongiseni Mthethwa and Sifiso Hlanti are all on three bookings for the season. Their next local game is also against Cape Town Spurs, on the 8th of November. Johnson might prefer them to sit out a suspension in that game, rather than the match that follows, against Orlando Pirates.
