Why Mamelodi Sundowns Rested Key Trio

Mamelodi Sundowns confirmed before their DStv Premiership match against the KwaZulu-Natal outfit that Lebo Maboe, Rushine De Reuck, Devine Lunga and Mothobi Mvala were not available – however there was no clarification for the shortfall of Grant Kekana, Rivaldo Coetzee and Lyle Lakay, who are regulars in the firing line up.

Signs are that the technical team took the choice to try not to chance suspensions in front of the MTN8 Final one weekend from now against Cape Town City.

Kekana missed the first leg of their CAF Champions League bunch stages gloss over away to AS Maniema Union in Kinshasa through a niggling physical issue and it's accepted he had not completely recuperated to confront Arrows.

Be that as it may, Coetzee and Lakay right now sit on three yellow cards in the homegrown association, which means another card would have controlled them out of the final at the Moses Mabhida Stadium, a danger the technical team were not ready to take. So is De Reuck, however as he's harmed, he wouldn't have played at any rate.

The expectation is that those on the injury list, except for Maboe, who is probably not going to include this season following a medical procedure toward the beginning of the mission, will return for the second leg against Union on Saturday evening.

In any case, should that not be the situation, then, at that point, the technical team would work vigorously to have them prepared, or if nothing else as choices, for the MTN8 final.
