SOCCER – PREMIER League side Matsapha United will be without the services of Sibonelo Dlamini when they take on Zibonele Vultures on Sunday.

The ‘Deep Blue Ocean,’ as the team is affectionately known, will meet the Hhohho Super League outfit at the Killarney Stadium in a Swazi Bank Cup round of 16 clash to kick off at 2:30pm.

The defender has been suspended for the game after being nabbed by yellow cards. Other players, who will be missing in action during the games, are National First Division side Sikhalo Se-Africa’s Sihawu Dlamini while Bad Boys’ Thulani Ngidi will miss the team’s next league clash as they were eliminated from the knockout tournament.

Premier League of Swaziland (PLS) Chief Operations Officer (COO) Pat Vilakati confirmed the suspensions yesterday.

“Only three players have been nabbed by cards and they will miss the games this weekend,” he said.

The COO then invited supporters to come in great numbers and  support the games slated for different stadia around the country.

“Supporters in all regions of the country will get a feel of the Swazi Bank Cup as the games have been decentralised. They should make sure to go cheer and see even the big teams in action,” he said.

He added that supporters would have to part with E30 for a single header and E40 for a double.

“We appeal to supporters to behave during these games and refrain from violent conduct. They should accept whatever results from the respective games,” he said.
