With the Premier Soccer League releasing the schedule for the opening matches of the 2017/18 Absa Premiership season, it has been confirmed that Pirates will open their campaign with a home match against newly promoted Highlands Park. 

The Buccaneers have confirmed that they are likely to be without the duo of Thabo Qalinge and Thembinkosi Lorch for the match.

"Winger Thabo Qalinge looks set to miss the start of the Absa Premiership when Orlando Pirates host Highlands Park in the league opener at Orlando Stadium next week. The 26-year old suffered a muscle abductor strain in a friendly match against Stellenbosch FC at the weekend," confirmed Bucs on the club's official website.

"According to the Bucs medical team, ‘Section’ as he is affectionately known, is still experiencing some discomfort and as a result, he will continue working on his rehabilitation," added the club.

"Meanwhile, Thembinkosi Lorch is also considered a doubtful starter against the Lions of the North. The 25-year old Lorch limped off the pitch in Pirates’ friendly match against Cape Town City, after sustaining a knock to the knee and has since been receiving treatment," confirmed the club.

It worries me that good players are always injured but goats and buffalos like Memela and Gabuza are never injured.
