With Thabang Monare set to return for Orlando Pirates after serving his one match suspension against Bloemfontein Celtic for the accumulatation of yellow cards, the club is expecting the return of three other stars.
The Buccaneers welcomed back strikers Gabadinho Mhango and Tshegofatso Mabasa on Tuesday against Siwelele as the Soweto giants moved third on the DStv Premiership log and closed the gap with Mamelodi Sundowns to only four points, though the Brazilians have three games in hand.
Speaking to the media after the match, Pirates head coach Josef Zinnbauer confirmed that the technical team is expecting Terrence Dzvukamanja, Thembinkosi Lorch and Nkanyiso Zungu to join the rest of the squad for the trip to Gqeberha on Saturday to face Chippa United.
“Dzuka (Dzvukamanja) comes back now, maybe on Saturday. Lorch comes back, maybe on Saturday, (and) Monare comes back on Saturday. We have more options for the game against Chippa. And Zungu comes back and then we have more options for the 20-man squad and then we have to see which is the best player for Chippa,” said Zinnbauer.
