THE Castle Lager Premier Soccer League enters the home stretch this weekend with championship and relegation contenders heavily hit with player suspensions.
A total of 25 players will not see action with Highlanders, Dynamos, Caps United and Hwange contributing a total of 11 players while relegation threatened police side Black Mambas have the highest number of suspensions, with four players sitting out their match against fellow strugglers Blue Rangers. Authorities at the side should be worried about the disciplinary issues at the club, especially for a police outfit.
“Please note that the players listed hereunder have each accumulated three (3) yellow cards and will be suspended for one match respectively.
“The said players shall not participate in their club’s Castle Lager League matches scheduled for 04 and 05 August 2012,” wrote PSL chief executive officer Kennedy Ndebele to the clubs.
Highlanders will miss the services of midfield maestro Mthulisi Maphosa, exciting right back Atlast Musasa and chief striker Graham Ncube. Champions Dynamos will be without striker Rodrick Mutuma and Tawanda Muparati for their match against FC Platinum. The platinum miners have no players on suspension.
