Tinkler To Risk Majoro Ahead Of Soweto Derby?

The Siya crew can report that Orlando Pirates hitman, Lehlohonolo Majoro, has made the trip to Bethlehem with the rest of the Bucs squad ahead of tonight's tricky encounter against Free State Stars at the Charles Mopeli Stadium.

'Ballojoro' could run the risk of missing out on the Soweto Derby on Saturday against former side, Kaizer Chiefs, however the decision to field Majoro against Ea Lla Koto solely lies with the Bucs technical team, with their quest to finish in the top two and qualify for next season CAF Champions League in mind.

Should the Bucs striker make an appearance in this fixture, it will be his first match back following his two-match ban for the straight red card he picked up against Platinum Stars two weeks ago.

Another challenging prospect for Tinkler is the fact that Pirates are a little thin upfront when it comes to goal scoring strikers, with Lennox Bacela providing the only other option as Kermit Erasmus is also sitting on three yellows and also runs the risk of a derby suspension.

The crew earlier reported that Sifiso Myeni who can be used as a second striker is suspended for tonight’s game having acquired his fourth yellow card against Polokwane City.

A final resort for the Bucs mentor is Mozambique international, Helder Pelembe who had a cameo appearance in Pirates’ league clash against Moroka Swallows late last year, coming on for Majoro in the second half.
