G'Day and welcome to the Lucas Masterpieces Moripe Stadium for our live coverage of this DStv Premiership clash between SuperSport United and Black Leopards.
Kick-off! We are underway here in Atteridgeville.
The conditions may well be very tricky here on a very wet and windy Lucas Moripe Stadium
It has been a decent start by the home team despite the conditions and Bradley Grobler has already had a low shot at goal BLOCKED!
The wind appears to be getting stronger and stronger and is playing havoc here. Bhasera must be careful as he already made two very dubious challenges.
The Players have been ordered to leave the field due to inclement weather. We assume it has just been paused for now. Further updates will follow.
The Players will return at 21:20 to warm-up and will start soon thereafter.
We are back underway after the lengthy stoppage.
The teams will take a while to get going to their normal pace here.
