“The Buccaneers have been hit with a mini-crisis in the goalkeeping department with two of the three goal-minders in the Bucs medical room and not on the field. With six days to go before Orlando Pirates are back on the field to play Bloemfontein Celtic, the medical team has a task on their hands to ensure that either Wayne Sandilands (finger) or Jackson Mabokgwane – who recently sustained a groin strain, is ready in time for the Absa Premiership clash against Siwelele,” Pirates confirmed on the club’s official website.

“According to the Medical Team, Mabokgwane is making good progress and is currently undergoing rehabilitation with the Strength and Conditioning department. Meanwhile, Sandilands who has returned to some level of group training is still at least 2-3 weeks away from making full recovery from a broken finger,” stated the club.

“Meanwhile, in other injury news, midfielder Bernard Morrison is currently undergoing rehabilitation for a groin strain. The Ghanaian has not been training with the rest of the squad as he has been experiencing some pain and discomfort in the affected area.

“On the Reserve side, Zakhele Lepasa who has been in red-hot scoring form for the SAB side is also undergoing assessment and rehabilitation following a knock on the knee sustained in the Bucs’ victory over rivals Kaizer Chiefs over the weekend. The positive news is that he has been training with the team as they prepare for the next match against Inqaba on the 8th of April,” confirmed Bucs. 

Orlando Pirates play Bloemfontein Celtic on 4 April.

@setlaboswana for a team that finished outside of the top 8 last season, With new players and a new technical team this season, i believe Coach Micho is right to use the Phrase "Work in Progress". OPFC is not madrid where they can make an overhaul of 80% new players in a single season.

@chiefs is useless, Micho had succeeded in taming bucs supporters this time around. Do Bucs have the luxury of building?

@setlaboswana is it wrong for Micho to think pirates is not at the level where he wants them to be ? Cos that's what he means by we are still building,does he have to settle for better while he can still do greater ? You know the minute you start explaining I get even more confused mate..

@chiefs is useless, believe me, every player will be available come Wednesday next week. Micho like mind games too much, Benni was quick to counter him on these mind games in Bucs' Nedbank cup exit. "We are still building"...."it is work in progress"...really?

@Ta Gino @chiefs is useless, what contribution did Sandilands really make since Kekana reduced him to amateur? Is Mabokgwane bucs' no.1 goalkeeper choice to justify the so called "injury update"? Honestly, Bucs must enjoy their extended break and will see them next week, we are focusing on the Nedbank cup this weekend.

@setlaboswana but how do you know that they will have a full squad on the 04 April ? Are you feeling the pressure mate ? Cos you seems to be blowing things out of proportion. Since when is giving an injury update such a bad thing? I mean teams do that time and again so does it always get to your nerves ?

@chiefs is useless, they want to create an impression that they will not be having a full squad on 04 April 2018, but, come match day those players will be available.

@chiefs is useless, they can see that we're fast becoming the strongest team unit in the PSL, so, anything we say, which to them seems like we're underestimating our strength, even a lousy injury update, is taken as a mind game. lol
