Huge Boost As Duo Return For Bucs’ Fourth Match In 13 Days

Orlando Pirates are expected to be boosted for this weekend’s match, as two of the team’s stars who missed the midweek match are back in contention for this Saturday’s clash. 

After missing Wednesday night’s 2-0 win over Black Leopards due to suspension, Alfred Ndengane and Augustine Mulenga are set to return for coach Milutin Sredojevic's side.

The Buccaneers are gearing up for a home match against Free State Stars at the Orlando Stadium, with the Soweto giants hoping to widen the gap to a potential six-point difference between themselves and Mamelodi Sundowns at the top of the Absa Premiership log. 

Against Leopards, Bucs had Thembinkosi Lorch marking his comeback to the starting line-up with superb performance and a goal, after the star midfielder missed the Wits match, due to suspension.

Bucs will be expecting to also have Xola Mlambo up for selection, following Vincent Pule's return against Lidoda Duvha, after the winger shook off the injury that delayed his progress.

With Bucs intending to use all their remaining matches to good effect in their final push for the league title, Sredojevic has emphasised on the importance of having all the team’s top players available.   

The match against Ea Lla Koto will be Bucs' fourth in 13 days, with the team having already played against Mamelodi Sundowns (0-0), Wits (1-0) and Leopards (2-0), since the beginning of the month.
