Why Three Chiefs Stars Are At Risk Of PSL Suspension
Kaizer Chiefs go up against Black Leopards in the Absa Premiership this weekend, but three of their players will know that they’re skating on thin ice ahead of a crucial game.
The Glamour Boys’ slim chances of making a late title push effectively went up in smoke over the weekend as they were beaten 1-0 by Baroka FC, and they’re now seventh in the league and eight points behind leaders, Orlando Pirates.
Ernst Middendorp’s side goes up against a Leopards side who have been formidable at home in Thohoyandou, and have a trio of players who find themselves just one yellow card away from missing this month’s crucial Nedbank Cup semi-final.
Leonardo Castro, Siphosakhe Ntiya-Ntiya and now Kgotso Moleko following his yellow card against Bakgaga, will miss the semi against Chippa if they pick up a booking against Lidoda Duvha.
Meanwhile, the Chilli Boys have Zitha Macheke, Thabo Nthethe, Gladwin Shitolo, Rhulani Manzini and Tebogo Tlolane all in the same boat as they go up against Bidvest Wits this week, with quintet likely to be walking on eggshells against the Clever Boys.
