Mabokgwane was in goals for the Sea Robbers in the two games
leading to the clash with Kaizer Chiefs, but the Serbian coach started
Siyabonga Mpontshane for the last Saturday's sold-out encounter at FNB Stadium.
The Limpopo-born goalkeeper is yet to play in the Soweto

It's just that in this game (derby) we felt that Mpontshane and his brilliant
goalkeeping could give us more.
"Jackson is a senior player and we don't count him as
an ordinary goalkeeper. We count Jackson as a kind of an assistant coach."
