Orlando Pirates Profile:

CBL last Year: N/A
2012/2013 PSL Stats: Played 18, Scored 0
Patrick Phungwayo will be looking for his first appearance in the Carling Black Label Cup against Kaizer Chiefs on July 27. The left-back did fairly well in his first season with Orlando Pirates, registering 18 league starts under his name.
Pirates’ fans seem to have been pleased with the player’s work rate, in addition to his defensive qualities, Phungwayo has the ability go past defenders down the left wing.
He is blessed with pace and skill that makes him unstoppable on the wing when on form. Phungwayo is currently on the bench, with Thabo Matlaba ahead of him in the number of votes accumulated in the Carling Black Label Cup so far. But with the voting lines still open there is still a chance for the player’s inclusion in the team.
