After playing to a goalless draw at the Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium in Durban last Saturday, Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM) will be away again this weekend.
They will travel to Siyabuswa, where they will lock horns with the newly promoted TX Galaxy FC at the Kameelrivier Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
What was not clear at the time of our going to press was whether TTM would travel to Siyabuswa with their technical staff or not. This after the team’s head coach, Mr Sello Chokoe, and his two assistants, David Mathebula and Lucky Nelukau, were told in no uncertain terms by the team’s management that they had to beat Real Kings last weekend and TS Galaxy on Sunday, or else they would be fired.
TTM’s right back, Patrick Meso, will watch the game from the grandstand on Sunday. He is still serving his three-match suspension after seeing red in their game against Richards Bay FC shortly before Christmas.
Meso will be available for selection when TTM visit Polokwane City in their Nedbank Cup match at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium next Wednesday evening, 23 January.
The combination of Edward Maqele, Wonderboy Makhubu and Onyedikachi Ononogbu as TTM’s striking force is expected to cause havoc in the danger zone of Galaxy.
Sunday’s other fixtures are: Stellenbosch FC vs Ajax Cape Town and Royal Eagles vs Richards Bay FC.
Saturday’s matches are Witbank Spurs vs Real Kings, TS Sporting vs Jomo Cosmos, Ubuntu Cape Town vs Uthongathi FC, Mbombela United vs Pretoria University and Cape Umoya United vs Maccabi FC.
