Only two players to miss Mandela Cup final

Posted in News on Nov 19, 2001.

Kaizer Chiefs will miss only two players in the return leg of the Mandela Cup final at Ellis Park on December 1 and the coach will have 15 players to select from.

Midfielder Patrick Mbuthu picked up his first yellow card on March 31 against USST of Reunion and them collected the second against Inter Luanda over the weekend. Thus he will serve a one-match suspension which means he sits out the final.

Isaac Mabotsa's red card against Inter means an automatic suspension and he will also not be available for the return leg.

Some of the players who were booked over the weekend only have a yellow card each and will therefore be eligible to play.

Nhlanhla Kubeka returns after serving a one-match suspension and his availability will take the total number of players to 15, including Doctor Khumalo and Rene Richards.

The team:

Brian Baloyi, Aubrey Mathibe, Patrick Mabedi, Nhlanhla Kubeka, Gary Goldstone, Cyril Nzama, Marco Mthembu, Arthur Zwane, Doctor Khumalo, Stanton Fredericks, Thabo Mooki, Jabu Pule, Rene Richards, Luke Jukulile, Justice Sithole.
