Absa Premiership

Parker out, Masilela doubtful

Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs’ top goalscorer, Bernard Parker, will not play a part in his side’s upcoming league fixture against Chippa United after picking up his fourth yellow card of the season against Wits on the weekend.

According to the soccerladuma website, the 26-year-old, who is in double figures for the Amakhosi so far this campaign with 10 goals, will be suspended for the clash with the Chilli Boys as his team look to bounce back from their 1-1 draw with the Clever Boys that stopped them from extending their lead at the top of the Absa Premiership.

However, good news for the Amakhosi faithful is that the Bafana Bafana man will only serve a one-match ban, meaning that he will be available for selection when Stuart Baxter picks his side for the Soweto Derby that takes place on Saturday afternoon.

Parker has been in inspired form for Chiefs this season under Baxter, and while both coach and player will be disappointed that he will miss the trip to Cape Town, it could be a welcome rest for their talisman ahead of their encounter with rivals, Orlando Pirates.

Meanwhile the club’s Bafana defender, Tsepo Masilela, could also miss the game against the Chilli Boys after picking up a muscle injury and will undergo a late fitness test to see whether he will be fit to play.
