Gaston Sirino could see himself on the stands and missing out on the Telkom Knockout final against Maritzburg United on December 14.
However, Sirino will only miss out if one of his team Mamelodi Sundowns’ fixtures are postponed.
Sirino was shown the red card by Victor Gomes in the 84th minute of the game against Golden Arrows – a game Sundowns won 2-1 to reach the final, for a harsh late tackle on Trevor Mathiane, which means he has to serve a two-match suspension.
The Brazilians will be without the 28-year-old Uruguayan forward when they make a return to league action against Amazulu at King Zwelithini Stadium on Tuesday night.
Downs are also set to play Stellenbosch on December 11, where Sirino would’ve served his second suspension in that match, but it was recently reported that the fixture could be postponed, which then means Sirino would serve his suspension in the TKO final.
Pitso Mosimane’s charges are faced with an issue of congested fixtures with the group stages of the CAF Champions League kicking off this weekend, where they are set to play Petro de Luanda on Saturday at Lucas Moripe Stadium.
The PSL is set to make an official announcement on all confirmed fixture changes.
