Onyango sustained a knee injury when the Brazilians beat Bidvest Wits 2-0 in an Absa Premiership match. The shotstopper was replaced by Wayne Sandilands.

Mosimane confirmed the team would be without the services of three players. Khama Billiat and Anthony Laffor picked up their respective injuries in a midweek game against Platinum Stars, with the Brazilians walking away with a hard-fought 2-1 victory against Dikwena.

“Dennis [Onyango] is out. He is on crutches,” said Mosimane.

“Khama [Billiat] is out. [Anthony] Laffor is out. Anele [Ngcongca] is out. You won’t see them in four to five games,” he added.
