The 27-year-old picked up a hamstring strain in the 70th minute and had to be substituted in the Sea Robbers CAF Confederation Cup Group B encounter.

The marauding left back will have to wait to see a specialist when the team return to Mzansi on Tuesday morning. The Buccaneers’ medical department released the following statement on their official website:

“Thabo suffered what appears to be a hamstring strain. He was treated immediately treated with the RICE Principle as well as an anti-inflammatory. He will go to a specialist during the course of the week to assess the full extent of his injury.”

Pirates next face Kaizer Chiefs in Carling Black Label Cup on Saturday, August 1, and it remains to be seen whether or not Matlaba recovers in time or if Patrick Phungwayo will have to step into his place.
