Defensive Changes For Pirates?

Orlando Pirates could be forced to make a defensive change for this weekend’s match against Black Leopards.  

The Buccaneers will be at the Thohoyandou Stadium on Sunday for their Absa Premiership clash against Leopards as they look to continue with their impressive run under Josef Zinnbauer, who was confirmed yesterday (Thursday) as the Absa Premiership Coach of the Month for January 2020.

However, in planning for the Lidoda Duvha match, the German mentor could be forced to make a change, as his regular right-back Abel Mabaso has been a doubt throughout the week due to the injury he picked up against Bidvest Wits last weekend. 

Mthokozisi Dube could be likely to be looked at by the Pirates technical team as a possible replacement for Mabaso, while the likes of young Thabiso Monyane will also be keen for a run.

Dube is keen on adding to the two league starts he has so far this season, which might be seen as below average for a player of his quality and experience.

Mabaso himself confirmed in his interview in edition 1160 0f Soccer Laduma that Dube is ready to come in for the Buccaneers.
