Orlando Pirates have confirmed the unavailability of midfielder, Mpho Makola and defender, Siyabonga Sangweni due to suspension, ahead of Bucs’ second leg CAF Confederation Cup clash against AS Kaloum.
Both players will be serving their one match suspensions, meaning that Bucs mentor Eric Tinkler will have to delve into his squad to replace the key players.
The Buccaneers will take an away two goal lead heading into the clash, thanks to goals from Oupa Manyisa and Thamsanqa Gabuza in the first leg.
“Football is a game of two halves. We are experienced enough to know that we cannot look too much into the first leg’s result because that could lead to the players being complacent. We respect our opposition and we will do all we can to prepare thoroughly for the second leg,” Tinkler tells his club’s official website.
The Soweto giants welcome the 12-time Guinean league champions at the Bidvest Stadium on Saturday, 6 June, with the game expected to start at 15h00.
