ICYMI: LATEST Soweto Derby team news

Dove seemingly out for the season

Mozambican central defender Edmilson Dove has been a key player for Arthur Zwane this season and his absence for the Soweto Derby is a massive headache for coach Zwane. Siyabonga Ngezana and Njabulo Ngcobo started the recent defeat to Swallows but have both come under-fire for their performances in that match. Zwane could persist with them, or install Zitha Kwinika in the side. Hardly ideal preparations.
