Orlando Pirates captain, Thabo Matlaba, is back in the squad for the team’s midweek match in Cape Town.
Matlaba has been included in the squad for Bucs’ trip to the Mother City for the match against Aja Cape Town. The 30-year-old missed Bucs’ match against Platinum Stars at the weekend, due to injury.
The Tembisa-born player last featured for Bucs in their 3-1 win over Baroka earlier this month. He missed the match against Mamelodi Sundowns, due to suspension. Against Polokwane City on January 20, ‘Festival’ was an unused substitute for Coach Milutin Sredojevic’s team.
Having missed last weekend’s 2-0 win against Dikwena, Matlaba is making his way back into the matchday squad for the match against the Urban Warriors.
Matlaba has made 15 starts out of 19 league matches for Pirates so far this season.
