Bucs’ Goalkeeping Topic Arises Again, Khuzwayo Enquiries…

Goalkeeping has come up as one of the concerns for Orlando Pirates as they prepare to face Kaizer Chiefs in their next match.

During their CAF Champions League match against Esperance last Saturday, the Buccaneers had Wayne Sandilands back in goals for the first time, since he was dropped after the first game of the season against Highlands Park in August. Before their Champions League game, Bucs had Jackson Mabokgwane in goals as they lost to Black Leopards in the Nedbank Cup, while Siyabonga Mpontshane who has been the team’s number one this season, has been missing from matchday squads in recent games.

Former Pirates defender, Tonic Chabalala, has weighed in on the team’s goalkeeping situation.

“Sandilands is not a bad goalkeeper but all I’m saying is that goalkeeping at Pirates has been a concern. From having watched Mpontshane and Mabokgwane this season, I have not been convinced,” said Chabalala. 

Chabalala has questioned the omission of Brilliant Khuzwayo from Bucs’ line-ups. The former Kaizer Chiefs shot-stopper has been playing for Bucs’ MultiChoice Diski Challenge team since he recovered from injury.

Khuzwayo kept a clean sheet as Bucs’ reserves beat their Free State Stars counterparts 2-0 at the Prince Mangosuthu Regional Stadium in KwaZulu-Natal on Sunday.

“I don’t know why Khuzwayo hasn’t been playing. I don’t know if he hasn’t recovered fully from injury or what is going on. In my opinion, the games we lost this season, especially the cup games, we were cost by our goalkeepers. Khuzwayo must be having regrets about leaving Chiefs now that (Itumeleng) Khune picked a long-term injury because he would be playing now at Chiefs,” added Chabalala.
