Modiba back in from injury

After recuperating from the injury he picked up in their season opener against rivals Mamelodi Sundowns, SuperSport United star Aubrey Modiba rejoined the team recently.
The Tshwane derby match was held at the Atteridgeville’s Lucas Moripe Stadium at the beginning of August.
Modiba came off the bench for Onismor Bhasera in the 86th minute in their crucial first leg semi-final of the 2019 MTN8 Cup against Sundowns in their second meeting in a short space of time.
Modiba made tremendous impact and created a few clear scoring chances but disappointed by poor finishing.
This Saturday, Matsatsantsa welcome Cape Town City FC in a league match in Mbombela.
Interestingly, City is a club Modiba played for before joining the Tshwane-based-outfit a few seasons ago.
“I’m back with the team and it’s certainly a great feeling. I missed a few matches, but I was impressed about the team’s overall performance. It was a tough start to the season but I’m proud of the team’s work rate so far.
We have been doing our homework at training and everything is on track,” said Modiba, a product of the Nedbank Ke Yona project.
Regarding the upcoming match against his former team Modiba emphasised that his teammates must focus on the match to collect maximum points.
“This is going to be a tough one. I think we must focus on the match itself, use home ground advantage and get a result. Our history against City is unforgettable but this time around we are aiming at getting a positive result out of the match” Modiba concluded.
