Majoro, Rusike to miss Soweto derby

Kaizer Chiefs' Lehlohonolo Majoro and Matthew Rusike will not take part on Saturday when they welcome Orlando Pirates for the highly-anticipated Soweto derby.

Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter revealed during a derby media briefing on Thursday that Majoro and Rusike join George Lebese, Jimmy Jambo and Jimmy Tau on the side line due to a variety of injuries.

Majoro who scored the all-important equaliser the last time the two teams met back in December missed the trip to Cape Town for the game against Chippa United while Rusike injured his groin in the game on Wednesday evening.

Baxter revealed though that Tsepo Masilela will be back for the game including joint PSL leading goal scorer, Bernard Parker who both missed the trip to Chippa United.

Kickoff for the game is at 3:30pm and tickets are sold out.
