Orlando Pirates Profile:
Name: Thulasizwe Mbuyane
Team: Orlando Pirates
CBL last Year: Started, substituted on 62 minutes for Ndumiso Mabena
2012/2013 PSL Stats: Played 9, Scored 2
Thulasizwe Mbuyane will be looking for his third successive start in the Carling Black Label Cup. Mbuyane has played in all the games in the competition since its inception in 2011.
Juju has a knack for scoring crucial goals in the big games. He will be happy to make his return to the starting 11 in the game against Kaizer Chiefs on July 27. But the player will have to be fully fit to make his return possible. He struggled with injuries that kept him on the sidelines for the better part of last season.
Mbuyane made nine league starts for Pirates in the 2012/13 season. The player will want to start his preparations for next season on a high with the game against Chiefs.
