Bucs Quartet Back For City Game

Orlando Pirates will be boosted by the return of defenders Thabo Matlaba and Happy Jele, midfielder Andile Jali and striker Kermit Erasmus when they take on Polokwane City at Orlando Stadium tonight.

Jele, Matlaba and Jali didn’t travel to Congo with Pirates for the CAF Champions League match against AC Leopards because they were all suspended.

Erasmus also remained in South Africa because he is cup tied in this competition after he played for SuperSport United in the CAF Confederation Cup earlier this year.

The quartet’s return will come as a major boost to Roger de Sa’s team, which is currently sat in 15th position on the log, after losing the only match they played this season, a 1-0 loss to AmaZulu.

Pirates’ next three league opponents are University of Pretoria (home), Kaizer Chiefs (away) and Mpumalanga Black Aces (home).

City’s next three league opponents are Ajax Cape Town (home), Wits (away) and Mamelodi Sundowns (home).

Meanwhile, City will be led by a caretaker coach in tonight’s game after partying ways with head coach Duncan Lechesa and his assistant Mandla Ncikazi, earlier this week.
