Orlando Pirates head coach Eric Tinkler and his technical team's preparations for their upcoming cup match could be disrupted due to injuries to key players.
The Buccaneers' next fixture is against Jomo Cosmos in the last 16 of the Nedbank Cup at Olen Park Stadium on Sunday, 3 April.
However, the team will have to monitor Thabo Matlaba and Mpho Makola's progress as they continue their recovery from the respective injuries they picked up while on national duty with Bafana Bafana.
The duo will miss the national team's second leg of their 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Cameroon at the Moses Mabhida Stadium this evening.
