Mhango Amongst 5 Pirates Stars Walking Suspension Tightrope

No less than five Orlando Pirates stars, including top goalscorer Gabadinho Mhango, run the risk of missing out on their last two matches of the season.

Fifth placed Pirates have three fixtures left in the 2019/20 campaign as SuperSport United, Maritzburg United and Stellenbosch FC all lie in wait for the Soweto giants.

To add to his misery of failing to pick up a single win since the restart of football, Pirates coach Josef Zinnbauer could be without five of his regular stars in their last two matches.

Ben Motshwari, Gabadinho Mhango, Paseka Mako, Innocent Maela and Tshegofatso Mabasa are all one booking away from being suspended for Pirates’ next clash.

Like his opposite number Ernst Middendorp, it is top goalscorer Mhango who Zinnbauer is most stressed about.

Middendorp will be without his sharp shooter, Samir Nurkovic in a crucial match against Mamelodi Sundowns after the Serbian picked up a booking against Stellenbosch FC on Sunday, J.Z will be hoping this is not the case for Mhango.

The Malawian still leads the Absa Premiership goalscoring charts with 14 goals. However, failing to find the back of the net in his last six outings has seen Peter Shalulile catch up to his tally, while Nurkovic and Bradley Grobler are one strike behind. 

Starting XI: Maritzburg v Wits
