Sangweni picked up an Achilles tendon injury in Bucs’ 3-1 victory over Mpumalanga Black Aces in Tuesday night’s Telkom Knockout clash, while Ntshumayelo was also forced out due to a recurring ankle injury.
Pirates’ Public Relations Officer, Mickey Modisane, informed the Siya crew that the duo underwent scans yesterday.
“Bibo and Nsimbi went for their scans in the afternoon (Wednesday), but the results will only be known on Thursday,” said Modisane.
With the second leg of the CAF Champions League and the quarterfinals of the Telkom Knockout coming up soon, Pirates will be hoping that the two players make a quick recovery.
