Cape Town - Mpumalanga Black Aces captain Eddie Ngalo missed the 1-0 defeat to Kaizer Chiefs because his was sent home prior to kick-off.

The 33-year-old defender was initially included Muhsin Ertugral's matchday squad for the Absa Premiership clash at FNB Stadium, but was conspicuous in his absence when the team sheets were named.

Speaking in his post-match interview, Ertugral blamed Ngalo for his side's Telkom Knockout exit at the hands of Amakhosi this past weekend and revealed his skipper was dropped for the midweek league fixture due to a disagreement in tactics.

"You mention Ngalo? He is actually the one who cost us the first game [against Chiefs] and that's not right especially for a captain," the Turkish coach said.

"We had a complete tactical approach to the game and the way he defended led to Chiefs capitalising.

"If a player doesn't agree on certain tactical approach of the game, you bring someone else."
