Orlando Pirates have provided an update on Thembinkosi Lorch.
Following their disappointing 1-0 loss against Green Eagles of Zambia in the CAF Champions League this past weekend, the Buccaneers will look to bounce back to winning ways in their Absa Premiership match against SuperSport United at the Mbombela Stadium tonight.
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.
The Soweto giants have confirmed that defender Mthokozisi Dube could also miss the Matsatsantsa match.
“Another player set to miss out on the match is right back Mthokozisi Dube who is still recovering from a shoulder injury,” confirmed the Buccaneers.
The Buccaneers are seventh on the log, following their 3-1 against Bloemfontein Celtic during the opening match of the season.
