Yesterday Orlando Pirates website confirmed that swashbuckling left back Thabo Matlaba made a welcome return to light training after recovering from an ankle injury.
Is he the difference maker? Is he the player we have been missing for a couple of weeks as the results have not gone our way?
Thabo provides the width we often lack in our encounters plus he has cannons for legs which comes in handy from time to time when we find it difficult to penetrate defences.
Though it’s not likely Matlaba will be fit in time for our Nedbank clash with Sundowns, is he the difference maker we have been longing for?
