2011-08-10 00:00

MARITZBURG United striker Diyo Sibisi is expected to be fit to take part in Sunday’s PSL opener against Bidvest Wits at the Harry Gwala stadium after he was involved in a minor car accident on Monday.

Sibisi had been travelling to a Durban-based hospital for a medical scan with a team driver when the car he was in was involved in a pile-up.

“He was banged up a little bit but [with] him not training at the moment is more of a precautionary measure,” said coach Ian Palmer at the team’s Orthman Road training ground venue yesterday. Palmer said he will be looking for nothing less than a win when he meets Wits on Sunday, but stressed that it will be a tough match as Wits are traditionally good season starters.

United chairman Farouk Kadodia believes that the finalisation of the squads technical team is has been very encouraging and that the introduction of video analyst Kirk Jonkers will prove to be beneficial.

The match kicks off at 3 pm.
