Orlando Pirates are to decide on Ntsikelelo Nyauza’s replacement in coming up with the line-up for their next match.
The Buccaneers are scheduled to host AmaZulu in Orlando in this coming weekend’s Absa Premiership match.
The Soweto giants, who have been in impressive form since the start of the new year, will be without two key players in their line-up in Ntsikelelo Nyauza and Abel Mabaso, who will both be serving the respective suspensions for the accumulation of yellow cards.
However, German coach Josef Zinnbauer may feel that he is not short of options to fill the gap in defence, with a player like Alfred Ndengane having showed in the last two matches that he is itching for game-time.
The former Bloemfontein Celtic player came on as a second half substitute for Zinnbauer’s team in the last two matches, both against Mamelodi Sundowns and Highlands Park respectively.
Meanwile, Mthokozisi Dube who has been working on his return to the starting line-up in the last few weeks, could be the man to replace Mabaso.
Dube has also been coming in as a substitute in last two matches against Sundowns and Highlands respectively.
