Coach Steve Komphela will be without the services of his trusted striker Gustavo Páez and full-back Kgotso Moleko when Amakhosi take on Mamelodi Sundowns next Tuesday.

Paez sustained an ankle injury during the Baroka FC game before the international break, while Moleko is expected to be out for six to eight weeks with a knee ligament injury he got during the Macufe Cup win against Bloemfontein Celtic.
