Blow for SSU ahead of Pirates match


SuperSport United winger Aubrey Modiba is set to miss next week's clash against Orlando Pirates.

The 24-year-old had to leave the pitch early due a hamstring injury sustained in the 2-0 loss to neighbours Mamelodi Sundowns at Lucas Moripe Stadium on Saturday.

According to reliable sources, the player has been advised to rest for at least two weeks.
