Pirates Still Without Star For DStv Prem Return

Orlando Pirates will be without one of their experienced and key players for their DStv Premiership match against Swallows.

The Buccaneers are scheduled to host Swallows at Orlando Stadium on Saturday while still searching for their first win of the season and currently sitting in 11th place on the log, while the Dube Birds are 7th on the standings and with four points from one win and a draw.

Having missed the 0-0 draw against Marumo Gallants before the FIFA international break after picking a red card in the 2-2 draw against Stellenbosch FC in the opening league match of the season, Ntsikelelo Nyauza will be sitting out the second of his two-match suspension.

Happy Jele and Thulani Hlatshwayo were the two centre-backs for Mandla Ncikazi and Fadlu Davids against Gallants, while Sandile Mthethwa who has since been loaned to Chippa United was on the bench.

Bucs have since signed highly rated Nigerian defender Olisa Ndah who could make his debut against Swallows depending on the availability of his work permit, while former Maritzburg United defender Kwanda Mngonyama is still waiting for a chance to prove his worth.

Ncikazi and Davids also have the option of giving young Thabiso Sesane another test at the big stage as they will keen to try different combinations to find their winning formula.

As confirmed by the PSL, another player who will be unavailable for his team this weekend is TS Galaxy’s Pogiso Sanoka for their match against Golden Arrows on Saturday.
