Jele To Return For Bucs V Downs?

Pirates To Make Adjustments For Sundowns

By Soccer Laduma - Jan 12, 2018 11:46 AM

Happy Jele could be set for a return to the line-up for Orlando Pirates when they face Mamelodi Sundowns this weekend.

The Buccaneers will be travelling to Tshwane’s Loftus Versfeld Stadium for their league match against Downs on Saturday without their influential captain Thabo Matlaba, who will be serving his one-match suspension after collecting his fourth yellow card of the season in Bucs’ 3-1 win over Baroka FC last weekend.

Furthermore, Bucs confirmed this week that they have Ntsikelelo Nyauza and Bernard Morrison receiving treatment from the medical team for their respective injuries.

As a result, Milutin Sredojevic and his technical team will have to tweak the team as they prepare for what is anticipated to be a tough encounter against the log leaders.    

The indication is that Jele could be considered to play a role against Sundowns in the battle for the valuable three points on offer. The veteran defender last featured in a league match for Bucs in their 2-2 draw against Polokwane City in September.

The 31-year-old has been on the bench in all of Bucs’ last five matches in the league. Newly signed Phetso Maphanga and Diamond Thopola could be other options for the technical team in selecting the best possible 18-man matchday squad.

@M-Rise K Member I Do Admit That Makola Does'nt Perfom Like Before But Its Only Goals That Are Missing From Him Otherwise He Is A Nightmare To All Psl Teams And If You Recall The Last Derby Its Him Who Created That Chance That Morisson Scored With A Hand

@BucsEternally. No buccanner I don't hate neither a player nor a technical team but for the sake of the team Truth must be told when it's due. I analys each player for our team and I can tell you the team is 20% balanced. 80% falls for small teams. To prove that how many players that are in the National team that play for our team? Before we used to have 4 or more. As for me being a fan of rugby I can't answer you coz I don't like it.

@BucsEternally first of all there's no player in the PsL who give away position like Makola,yah agree he's good with ball on his feet and all that but he loses position cheaply and jog back instead of pressuring the opposition and try tonwin back position, as for Sarr the less said about him the better,I mean the guy can't even protect his back four like the likes of Katsande and Mabunda.he's a pure cow
