SuperSport United will be missing a host of key players including Clayton Daniels, Michael Morton and Thabo September when they take on Orlando Pirates in their next PSL encounter on Sunday.
Daniels is currently suspended while both September and Morton are sitting on three yellow cards and coach Gordon Igesund doesn't want to risk losing them ahead of their Telkom Knockout Final game against Platinum Stars next weekend.
Meanwhile, midfielder Thato Mokeke is also set to miss the game against Pirates at the Peter Mokaba Stadium after undergoing an operation.
"Thato had a problem on his thigh muscle and has gone for an operation," Igesund said. "He will be out for at least a week.
"Clayton Daniels is suspended, Michael Morton and Thabo September both have three yellow cards and I am leaving them out of this game.
“Dove Wome is only arriving on Friday and won’t be in the starting line-up," he added.
However, the former Bafana Bafana mentor is not concerned, insisting it is an opportunity for some of his other players to prove themselves in such a high-profile match-up.
"I will be making few changes but I am happy because this will also give me opportunity to look at the others players that have not been playing,” Igesund concluded.
