Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs defender Lorenzo Gordinho headlines a long list of Premiership players at risk of facing suspension in the next round of matches in the league.

Gordinho, who has been a regular under Steve Komphela and has scored three goals for Chiefs, has picked up three yellow cards, and another caution against Polokwane City on Sunday will see him miss one game.
