The Glamour Boys have had a hot and cold few days last week as they beat Cape Town City 2-0 before letting a 1-0 lead slip over Wits to draw 1-1 at home.

Now, as they prepare to make the trip out to face the current Absa Premiership leaders at Harry Gwala Stadium, Steve Komphela has some welcome news given the return of one of his key defenders.
Erick Mathoho, who has now completed his two-match ban for a red card against SuperSport United, is back and available for selection and will give Komphela some much-needed depth at centre back, given his current defensive crisis.
The Glamour Boys currently have several big name players out injured after picking up problems for either club or country, and there wasn’t a single defender on the bench for them as they took on Wits last week.

Meanwhile, while a return against his former club looks slim, Ryan Moon is expected back in full training as he continues to recover from his knee injury, with Komphela slowly drawing closer to having a full squad available again.
In other news at the club, Willard Katsande is on thin ice going into the game in Pietermaritzburg, with the Zimbabwean sitting on three yellow cards after four games and now just one yellow away from suspension.
