against Maritzburg United, despite being fit.
The 29-year-old, who scored the winning goal which took United to the
last four, was left on the bench for the victory over Kaizer Chiefs in
the Premiership amid reports linking him with a move to African
champions, Mamelodi Sundowns.
Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has made no secret of the fact that he
admires the New Zealand international, and made it clear the club want
to sign a 'sniper' capable of scoring plenty of goals.

potentially be on the cards in the not too distant future.
In his four seasons with the Pretoria-based outfit, the Christchurch
born hitman has banged in close to 50 goals in all competitions for the
side currently coached by Eric Tinkler.
