The Jomo Cosmos arsenal will be boosted by the return of midfield grafter, Mduduzi Sibeko for Wednesday’s crucial Play-offs contest against Black Leopards in Thohoyandou.

Sibeko served out his mandatory one-game suspension in last week’s goalless draw away to Platinum Stars and has been certified fit for selection.

However, it is still unclear if star forward, Sicelo Mkhize will play any part in the Promotional contest after copping an ankle problem early this month.

Table-topping Black Leopards host Jomo Cosmos on Match day 5 of the ongoing PSL/NFD Play-offs at Thohoyandou Stadium on Wednesday.

Both teams played to a 2-all draw on May 20 in Vosloorus, with Ezenkosi bouncing back to snatch a point at the death.

Lidoda Duvha are currently top of the mini-league log with four points in two matches while Cosmos are in 2nd place with two points.

Victory for Leopards will take them to an unassailable eight points and subsequent promotion to the PSL, while any other result could give Cosmos a chance to seal up their return to the PSL: if they beat Platinum Stars on June 2 in Vosloorus.
