Bucs To Make Changes For Cosmos’ Cup Tie

Orlando Pirates are set to make changes in their line-up for the Nedbank Cup game with Jomo Cosmos this weekend.

With Edwin Gyimah suspended for the game, Eric Tinkler and his technical team have to make a change into their defence for the important tie against unpredictable Cosmos.  

In their game against Bidvest Wits before the FIFA break, Gyimah played alongside Ayanda Gcaba in central defence for Bucs. Happy Jele and Thabo Matlaba completed the back four operating at right-back and left-back respectively.

However, with Matlaba having returned from the national team carrying a knock, there could be more changes in the starting line-up for Bucs against Ezenkosi.

Another Pirates player that picked up an injury while on national duty is Mpho Makola. The good news for Pirates is that both Rooi Mahamutsa and Thandani Ntshumayelo are available for selection, after recovering from their respective injuries.

There has been yet to be official confirmation on the availability of Matlaba and Makola for the trip to Olen Park Stadium on Sunday, although Tinkler confirmed that the medical team would be assessing the duo.
