Middendorp to ring changes



Maritzburg United coach Ernst Middendorp expects to make changes to his line up for the provincial derby against Lamontville Golden Arrows on Wednesday, following their exit from the Nedbank Cup at the weekend.

He will be forced to make at least one change with the suspension to wingback Rheece Evans, who was sent off before halftime of Saturday’s 1-2 defeat to SuperSport United in the cup quarterfinal.

“It has been a huge disappointment for everybody because we made our own loss, no doubt about it. We have to look into what happened and sort it out before Wednesday,’ said the German-born coach.

“We must decided how to get the best out of Mohamed Awal and him into the right shape and concentrated. He is one of the best defenders in the league but he is now in a slump.

Awal was taken off at halftime of the cup tie at the Harry Gwala Stadium because Middendorp blamed him for the equaliser fro SuperSport. “He is either really good or bad, there is no in between,” said Middendorp.

A win for Maritzburg at home to Arrows on Wednesday would keep up their bid for a first-ever top eight finish and participation in next season’s MTN8.
