Grobler to miss Cape Derby



Striker Bradley Grobler has been ruled out of Ajax Cape Town's Absa Premiership clash with Chippa United on Friday night.

The forward was seen training on his own on Wednesday and coach Jan Pruijn admitted that he would not play in the Cape Town Derby.

“Grobler is out with an injury, we are not sure what it is yet,” Pruijn says. “But this leaves us a little short up front, even though I must say he has not quite come to the party this season as we would have expected him to with the number of chances that have been created for him.”

It means that Ajax are likely to preserver with Khama Billiat as their lone striker, after he was moved from his usual right-wing position in the midweek 0-0 draw at BidVest Wits.

He had a number of chances to score in that match and also had a goal disallowed.

Also missing for the Chippa game will be Dutch midfielder Koen van der Laak, who came on as a substitute against Black Leopards on November 11, but lasted barely 10 minutes before needing to be replaced himself.

Midfielder Nhlanhla Shabalala picked up a knock at Wits and has been ruled oute. Matthew Booth is also suspended.
