Leopards’ right back, Marks Munyai.
After their midweek match against Baroka FC at the Thohoyandou Stadium on Wednesday evening, Black Leopards will be on the road again this Sunday. Lidoda duvha will travel to Durban, where they will battle it out against Lamontville Golden Arrows at the Princess Magogo Stadium.
The Thohoyandou side must collect the maximum points on Sunday in order to move out of the relegation quagmire. Leopards were languishing at the bottom of the log until last Thursday when the league deducted six points from Amazulu FC for failure to implement a FIFA ruling. Amazulu were left with only one point in their league account and consequently dropped to the bottom of the log after the deduction.
Two of Leopards’ regular players, Mwape Musonda and Jean Munganga, will be available for selection on Sunday. The duo watched the team’s game against Supersport United from the grandstand because of injuries. Should he be given a chance on Sunday, Munganga is expected to form a good combination with Pentjie Zulu, Nyiko Sibanda and Marks Munyai at the back.
Also on Sunday, Baroka FC will host Supersport United at the Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane. Bidvest Wits will be visitors to Mamelodi Sundowns at the Lucas Moripe Stadium in Pretoria. Bidvest Wits, who narrowly escaped relegation last season, are a close contender for the league title. Amazulu will host Orlando Pirates at the King Zwelithini Stadium in Durban tomorrow afternoon.
Highlands Park will play their second match at home. They will host Chippa United at the Makhulong Stadium in Thembisa. Kaizer Chiefs will entertain Polokwane City at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban. The Free State derby between Bloemfontein Celtic and Free State Stars will be staged at the Goble Park Stadium in Bethlehem. Maritzburg United will play against Cape Town City at the Harry Gwala Stadium in Pietermaritzburg.
