Botes out of Sundowns contest
Posted: 21 February 2017 Time: 09:04
Platinum Stars are without veteran striker Henrico Botes for tonight's clash with newly crowned CAF Super Cup champions Mamelodi Sundowns.
Botes is suspended for the league tie at Royal Bafokeng Stadium [19h30] after picking up a fourth booking in his team's goalless draw with Baroka last week.
Maritzburg United will also be without suspended defender Brian Onyango in their trip to SuperSport United on Wednesday night, while Bidvest Wits have no such concerns when they host struggling Bakgaga tomorrow.
Dikwena, Sundowns, SuperSport and Wits are playing catch-up in the league this week after featuring successfully in CAF competition, with the Brazilians notably pipping Congolese giants TP Mazambe to Super Cup honours on the weekend.
