Cape Town - Mpumalanga Black Aces coach Muhsin Ertugral has explained the reason behind Jackson Mabokgwane dropping to the bench.

Since the 2-2 draw against Kaizer Chiefs a fortnight ago, Mabokgwane has not featured in the last two games.

Veteran keeper Shu-Aib Walters has slotted into the starting line-up while Mabokgwane looks to regain some confidence.

"It's not about mistakes. We all do mistakes. It is also about Shu-Aib doing well. Actually Shu-Aib is also a great keeper and Jackson's confidence has been a little bit down because of mistakes we had," Ertugral told KickOff.

"He is a good keeper, he will have a chance again. The management even decided to give him a high salary. The management have done everything but at the end there is no negotiation with ill-discipline.

"We have a lot of youngsters here, you can't come one day and not come the other day. This is work, you can't decide as player to stay away a couple of days and you don't come to the training session.

"He is a great player we all know that. We would have loved to have him here but at the end of the day there is no negotiation in terms of discipline."
