Key players to miss out this weekend
The players picked up cautions towards the end of last season, which sees their punishment carry over to the opening round of Premiership action this weekend.
SuperSport United’s Sibusiso Zuma is another one. He will miss Matsatsantsa’s trip to Ajax Cape Town on Friday night while Sheppard will miss Golden Arrows’ trip to Orlando Pirates, also on the opening night.
Black Leopards skipper Bobe would have lined up against hard-running Madubanya in the Leopards-Bloemfontein Celtic clash on Saturday, Augsut 11, but both influential stars are out of contention for their sides.
Leopards will also be without suspended centre back Humphrey Khoza while Maritzburg United will miss Rheece Evans and Platinum Stars will be minus Henrico Botes.
