Bucs’ Serbian coach and his technical team will be monitoring the progress of Justice Chabalala and Thabo Qalinge during the course of the week, as the two players have been nursing respective injuries, as confirmed by the club.

“The games are coming thick and fast as the league approaches the final stretch. Medical departments across the entire Absa Premiership have been working around the clock to ensure that players are available for selection for their respective technical teams.

“The Mighty Buccaneers are scheduled to play three matches in seven days, starting with the game on the weekend against Platinum Stars (January 27) followed by Ajax Cape Town four days later in the Mother City and then finally Maritzburg United on February 3.

“With this gruelling schedule ahead, there’s no denying the important role that the Strength and Conditioning department will play during this period,” Bucs stated on the club’s official website.

Micho is not very worried about the two players.He is working his way to build his combination that will play as best as he want.The two boys have done enough to convince the technical team,neaning tgat they are safe being injered.Pirates will win game without them as much as the technical team wishes,wants,or plan.#UP THE BUCS.

Lack of communication from our communication department will make us moer the coach for no valid reason one day. All along we've been crying about the coach not using Chabalala only to find out today that he's injured. Ayi
