Pirates Stars Who Could Be At Risk Of Missing Downs Clash…

Orlando Pirates currently have stars at risk of missing the big match against Mamelodi Sundowns. 

Following the side's loss to Kaizer Chiefs in the Soweto Derby at the weekend, Pirates are preparing for a trip to KwaZulu-Natal’s Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium against Golden Arrows in their next match this coming Saturday.

The Abafana Bes’thende fixture will be followed by another away match for the Buccaneers, against Sundowns at Loftus Versfeld Stadium on March 17. 

Bucs coach Josef Zinnbauer could be at risk of losing midfield ace Ben Motshwari and defender Paseka Mako for the Sundowns clash, as the two players are currently on three yellow cards, and one card each away from suspension.

Motshwari made a return to Bucs’ starting line-up against Amakhosi, after missing the previous two matches due to injury, while Mako was a second half substitute.  

Pirates beat Sundowns 1-0 in their first round match in January through a goal from Gabadinho Mhango.
