Morrison out for Arrows clash


Morrison picked up his fourth yellow card in the Buccaneers’ 1-0 defeat to Cape Town City in the Nedbank Cup on Wednesday and will serve a one match suspension this weekend.

Pirates will be hoping that winger Luvuyo Memela can make a return to the pitch after failing a late fitness test before the match against the Citizens on Wednesday. The Soweto derby hero picked up an ankle injury in a friendly match last weekend, but the medical team has been working tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure the player is back to face Arrows.

Pirates is not the only team that will miss a player through suspension. Chippa United will be with captain James Okwuosa for their match against Free State Stars at Sisa Dukashe Stadium tomorrow.

Ea Lla Koto will be without two key defensive figures in Nyiko Mobbie and the experienced Rooi Mahamutsa, who has enjoyed a good season in Bethlehem.

Maritzburg United have to do without captain Bevan Fransman for their match against Polokwane City at Harry Gwala Stadium tonight. He was sent off in the Nedbank Cup match against National First Division side Royal Eagles last Sunday.

Rise and Shine will also be missing their captain Jabu Maluleke, who will miss a league match for the first time this season. Sibusiso Sikhosana is also serving a suspension for City.
