The late Polokwane City defender Mogau Tshehla will be buried in Witbank, Mpumalanga Friday.

He died in a car crash on Sunday evening.

The club’s match against Bloemfontein Celtic this coming weekend has been postponed to give players enough time to mourn the loss of their key player.

Tshehla’s memorial service will be held at the Witbank Civic Theatre Thursday afternoon.

The 26-year-old defender died while on his way home to visit his family in Mpumalanga.

Tshehla joined Polokwane City in January last year from National First Division side Witbank Spurs.

He’s the older brother of Mamelodi Sundowns forward Percy Tau, as well as Royal Eagles striker Dumisani Tau.
