The Buccaneers will be hosting Ezenkosi in an Absa Premiership game at the Orlando Stadium on Saturday evening.
Eric Tinkler and his team will be aiming to turn things around against Jomo Sono’s side, after losing the first round game 1-0 at Olen Park Stadium in January.
Bucs have provided the team’s injury update on the club’s official website:
Menzi Masuku has been ruled out of the Absa Premiership clash against Jomo Cosmos on the weekend due to injury.
Masuku who also missed Bucs’ 2-0 victory over rivals Kaizer Chiefs in the Nedbank Cup, has suffered a thigh strain which rules him out for two weeks.
Meanwhile, striker Lehlohonolo Majoro also looks set to miss the home clash against Ezenkosi as he is still receiving treatment for a hamstring strain which saw him miss the clash against Chiefs.
Major has since been working on strengthening and core work with the rehabilitation team. As for any casualties following the Chiefs match?
The Bucs medical has declared, apart from minor knocks and bruises to the likes of Issa Sarr, Edwin Gyimah, Mpho Makola and brace hero Tendai Ndoro; there is nothing serious to report about.
