Orlando Pirates’ new signing, Xola Mlambo, has been included in the team’s travelling squad for their midweek match in Cape Town.
The Buccaneers are in the Mother City for tonight’s (Wednesday) Absa Premiership match against Ajax Cape Town. Mlambo, whose signing with Pirates from Bidvest Wits was announced by the Soweto giants on Monday, is with Coach Milutin Sredojevic’s team in Cape Town.
Having started training with his new teammates at Bucs before their trip to Cape Town, ‘Ten Ten’ has done enough to earn a place in the travelling squad for the match.
Whether the central midfielder will start or be part of the 18-man matchday squad against the Urban Warriors, will be known at a later stage.
Bucs have a chance to overtake Cape Town City, as well as to close the gap between them and Mamelodi Sundowns to only two points at the top of the log, should they win against Ajax.
The match at the Cape Town Stadium is scheduled to start at 19h30.
