Black Leopards coach Patrick Aussems will get an opportunity to sit on the bench for the first time since his appointment, when they take on Baroka in the DStv Premiership Limpopo derby encounter at Thohoyandou Stadium on Tuesday night.
Aussems watched from the stands as Lidoda Duvha suffered a 2-0 defeat to SuperSport United in their first match of the season last week, while he was still awaiting his work permit.
But news from the Leopards camp is that the Belgian is now eligible to sit on the bench alongside his two assistant coaches, Morgan Shivambu and Mongezi Bobe.
Leopards are currently second from bottom on the Log, while Bakgaga are in 3rd place following their 2-1 win against Maritzburg United in their first match.
Matsimela Thoka remains in charge while head coach Dylan Kerr remains suspended.
