With the Buccaneers aiming to move up the log, after playing just one match in the league so far this season, the club has provided an update on Lorch, who has been out injured since his Man of the Match performance against Kaizer Chiefs in the Carling Black Label Cup last month.

“Meanwhile, Footballer of the Season Thembinkosi Lorch looks set to miss out on the Buccaneers’ third consecutive game due to an injury,” confirmed Pirates on the club’s official website.
