Bucs Defender Set For Return
Orlando Pirates To Be Boosted By Defender
Orlando Pirates are expected to have Gladwin Shitolo back in the team in time for their upcoming matches.
The 28-year-old, who starred in Bucs’ defence in their first two matches of the season against Chippa United and Baroka FC, was a notable absentee for Milutin Sredojevic’s side against Ajax Cape Town last night.
The word from the Pirates camp is that the versatile player had a slight knock which led to the technical team not wanting to risk fielding him in the match against the Urban Warriors.
The Buccaneers are preparing for their next Absa Premiership match, which will be against Maritzburg United in KwaZulu-Natal on Friday. Shitolo is expected to recover fully and be ready for the match at the Harry Gwala Stadium.
The team also have Siyabonga Mpontshane working on his return to full fitness, as well as Riyaad Norodien.
