In-Form Pirates To Invade Depleted Leopards

As Black Leopards prepare to host Orlando Pirates in their second round Absa Premiership clash, there have been concerns in the camp of the Limpopo outfit regarding injuries to two of the team’s goalkeepers. 

The Buccaneers will go to Thohoyandou Stadium on Sunday aiming to repeat what they did in the first round when they beat Lidoda Duvha at Orlando in December, so as to continue with their impressive run under coach Josef Zinnbauer.

While Leopards will want to upset Bucs so as to move away from relegation zone, Alan Clark and the team have been dealt a blow in their planning as goalkeepers Jonas Mendes and King Ndlovu, who are first and second choice respectively, are both injured. 

“There is a crisis of goalkeepers at Black Leopards as two of their top goalkeepers are injured. Mendes is injured and Ndlovu is also injured,” confirmed a close source.

Mendes was substituted in the second half of Leopards’ 4-0 win over the North West University in the Nedbank Cup last weekend after picking an ankle injury.  

Lidoda Duvha have Rotshidzwa Muleka and Rendani Maduwa as the only available goalkeepers going into the match against the Buccaneers.
