AmaTuks beat Aces 2-1 at the Tuks Stadium at the weekend, but two players listed on their teamsheet, Ronald Ketjijere and Grant Kekana, were not present at the game.

As it turned out, neither player was available for the game because they were playing for Tuks' reserve team in the Diski Challenge final against Mamelodi Sundowns in Soweto on the same day.

"Yes there were on the team list but ended up not sitting on the bench," he explained.
