Bucks face tough Ezenkosi test
23 September 2016
Mthatha Bucks will need to be at their best to come away with some points form their trip to the North West University Stadium, where they meet Jomo Cosmos on Sunday.
Amathol’amnyama go into the match in excellent form, having claimed seven points from their opening three matches of the season, which sees them sitting top of the table.
Cosmos, relegated from the PSL last season, have managed only two points so far this season (they occupy 15 th position) and will be desperate to register a first victory, making this a tough game for Bucks.
With the exception of the injured Sihle Maso, Bucks coach Velile Dyaloyi is expected to have a full strength squad to choose from
