Chippa minus suspended James Okwuosa against Platinum Stars

Posted: 26 October 2016 Time: 12:38

Chippa United will be without influential centre-back James Okwuosa in Friday's Absa Premiership clash with Platinum Stars at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.

The big Nigerian is suspended after picking up his fourth caution of the season in last night's goalless draw with Bloemfontein Celtic at the same.

"He will miss the game on Friday, but it is fine," said a Chilli Boys official on the club's website.

"When a player has three yellow cards you’re always thinking for planning purposes; when is he going to the fourth, so we’re fine now, we move on."

Okwuosa, who narrowly missed out on joining Orlando Pirates in the off-season, has formed a strong partnership at the back with Bongani Kama.

In other team news, coach Dan Malesela recently welcomed back right-back Diamond Thopola and midfielder Tshwarelo Bereng from injury, but striker Rhulani Manzini remains on the sidelines.
