Zambian midfielder Nathan Sinkala is likely to make his first start for Stellenbosch when they take on Maritzburg United in the Nedbank cup last 32 match tonight.
Sinkala joined Stellenbosch during the January transfer window period after his contract was not renewed by DRC giants TP Mazembe.
The 28-year-old has played for teams such as Sochaux in France and Grasshoppers in Switzerland but spent most of his playing days at Mazembe.
“Yes Nathan Sinkala is a really quality player, decorated footballer on African soil so he will definitely add huge value so hopefully he will be ready for the match,” Coach Steve Barker said ahead of the match.
“Now we have to concentrate on the Nedbank Cup and just get our minds off the League for a while and yeah just enjoy the cup competition and then get back to hard work when we play SuperSport in two weeks time,” he said.
The match will start at 20:00 at Athlone Stadium.
