Cape Town - Mpumalanga Black Aces captain Dennis Masina is one of several players to express their disappointment following the late postponement of Absa Premiership fixtures.

The league was set to recommence at the weekend after nearly two weeks off for the FIFA international break, but the delayed return of the Bafana Bafana squad from their tour of Cental America meant all but one of this weekend's league games was rescheduled.

Aces are riding high in second place in the after the first six games, level on points with Platinum Stars at the top, and Masina is unhappy with the disruption to their preparations caused by the rescheduling.

"The postponement has disturbed our rhythm. We had already had the break and now we wanted to get back and start playing again but there is nothing we can do," he told Soccer Laduma.

"We will have to make sure we keep busy over the weekend by playing friendly games to keep the momentum going," Masina concluded.

AmaZayoni take on Dikwena in a mouthwatering top-of-the-table clash on Wednesday, before playing their delayed fixture against Kaizer Chiefs on Tuesday 27 October.
