Schut hasn’t played a match since suffering an ankle injury against Orlando Pirates on 27 August.

“Schut hasn’t even started training with other players, he is certainly out for this weekend,” said Thuswa. 

Sundowns fans can breathe easier after it was confirmed that star duo Khama Billiat and Teko Modise have been declared fit for the game.
