Massive Boost For Pirates As Injury Woes Ease Up

Orlando Pirates, who have had to deal with a growing list of injury casualties in recent times, have received a major boost on the injury front.

The Buccaneers will make the trip to the Princess Magogo Stadium this weekend where they are set to take on Lamontville Golden Arrows.

Ahead of Saturday’s fixture, the  Soweto giants confirmed that several of their players are working their way back from injury, while Deon Hotto returned from international duty with Namibia, seemingly unscathed.

The likes of Zakhele Lepasa and Innocent Maela, both of whom are yet to feature for first team coaches Mandla Ncikazi and Fadlu Davids this season are nearing a return to the field.

“On the injury front, several Buccaneers are nearing a return to action after lengthy spells on the sidelines, with defender Innocent Maela and striker Zakhele Lepasa among those inching closer to featuring for the first time this season,” Bucs confirmed in a statement the club’s official website.

The Buccaneers will go in search of three points that could see them move as high as fifth place on the DStv Premiership standings.

Kick off for the match is at 15:00.
