Pirates' Selection Headache, Three Stars Out & One Doubt

Orlando Pirates To Be Without Some Of Their Key Players

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 25, 2018 11:58 AM

The Orlando Pirates technical team could be faced with a selection headache for tonight’s game, as some of the team’s star players have been ruled out.

The Buccaneers will host Bidvest Wits at Orlando Stadium in an Absa Premiership match to be played behind closed doors, as a punishment to the club for unruly behaviour of the supporters emanating from last season.

Bucs have confirmed that the team will be without Thembinkosi Lorch, who has been ruled out for the rest of the season due to a shoulder injury, as well as Gladwin Shitolo and Mpho Makola for injury and suspension respectively.

“Orlando Pirates Technical Team have a selection headache ahead of tonight’s clash against Bidvest Wits. There are a number of players who have been ruled out of this encounter due to injury. The latest name to be added to the Bucs casual list is the in-form Luvuyo Memela who joins another in-form attacker Thembinkosi Lorch who has been ruled out for the rest of the season after injuring his shoulder,” Bucs confirmed on the club’s official website.

“Meme – as Memela is affectionately known, is due to undergo a late fitness test after getting injured during training this week. The Bucs Medical Team are expected to make a call later today on the 30-year old left-footer,” confirmed the club.

“Meanwhile, defender Gladwin Shitolo has been ruled out of tonight’s match after suffering a foot injury. The clean tackling centre back is currently undergoing rehabilitation as the medical staff look to get him ready for Bucs’ away trip to Cape Town this weekend where they’ll play Cape Town City. Over and above the injury concerns, Pirates will also be without the services of midfielder Mpho Makola who will be serving a one-match suspension,” confirmed Pirates.

The tendency of losing Shitolo comes with voodoos for us to lose games unnecessarily.

Without Shitolo we look vulnerable at the back. #Chabalala must start today.
