Jomo Cosmos are ready to slug it out with NFD new boys Real Kings in a tricky league tie scheduled for Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium in Clermont, Durban on Sunday afternoon.

But Jomo Sono’s team will be without playmaker Linda “Figo” Mntambo, who is serving a suspension after receiving successive yellow cards in the previous matches away to Mthatha Bucks and at home against Milano United last Wednesday.

Also out through injury is midfielder Matsilele Sono Junior, and the striking duo of Kevin Ndayisenga and Brice Aka.

However, there will be no shortage of options in attack and middle of the pack as the Ezenkosi boss is expected to ring changes to suit his strategy for the game.

Both teams settled for a goalless draw when they clashed for the first time this season at Olen Park Stadium last November.

Cosmos currently occupy joint third on the NFD log with 26 points, while the struggling Durban side is sitting in a precarious 13th position with 18 points from 17 matches.
