Mpumalanga Black Aces attackers Abia Nale and Mabhuti Khenyeza are doubtful for tonight's Absa Premiership clash with Chippa United at Port Elizabeth's Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.
The pair have been carrying knocks, while Valery Nahayo and Dennis Masina have been ruled out through injury, according to their club's official website.
Veteran coach Clive Barker expressed respect for the high-flying Chilli Boys, who are fifth on the table with 20 points from 12 games - four points richer than Aces.
"Chippa are a tough team and we will respect them for the way they have played this season, however, they are above us on the log standings and I think we need the points more they do because even if they lose and we win, they’ll still be ahead of us on points," said Barker.
In-demand AmaZayoni striker Tendai Ndoro added: "We’re still one of the best teams in the PSL and we need to believe in ourselves – not to look down."
