Orlando Pirates have provided another update on the PSL's Footballer of the Season, Thembinkosi Lorch, ahead of tonight’s match against SuperSport United.
Earlier today the Buccaneers reported on their website that the attacking midfielder was doubtful for the Matsatsantsa match due to injury.
In their latest update, this afternoon, the Soweto giants have confirmed that the 26-year-old travelled with the team to Nelspruit, though it is not yet clear if the Bafana Bafana star will be in Coach Milutin Sredojevic’s match-day squad for the match at the Mbombela Stadium.
“Footballer of the Season Thembinkosi Lorch has been included in the traveling party that is currently in Nelspruit ahead of the Absa Premiership encounter against SuperSport United tonight but it’s not yet clear if the 26-year old will be included in the 18-man squad,” confirmed Pirates.
