Interim Coach Patrick Mabedi has made two changes in the starting line-up to tackle Ajax CT this afternoon.
Captain Itumeleng Khune is ill with abdominal pain. Therefore, Brilliant Khuzwayo will be the player who will stand between the sticks today.
Similarly, Sibusiso Khumalo didn’t make the trip to Cape Town due to a hamstring injury. This will see youngster Siphosakhe Ntisa-Ntiya start his second match of the season at left back.
Wiseman Meyiwa is not taking part today due to national duty with Amajita, South Africa national under-20 football team playing in the Africa U20 Cup of Nations qualifiers this weekend.
With Khune out, Siphiwe Tshabalala will wear the captain’s armband.
Kickoff is at 15:00.
