Matlaba To Return As Bucs Aim For Third Successive Win
Thabo Matlaba Expected To Return For Orlando Pirates
Thabo Matlaba is expected to return for Orlando Pirates, as the team aim for their third successive win.
Matlaba missed the 3-1 win for Bucs against Mamelodi Sundowns last weekend, as he was suspended. The Bucs captain has completed his one-match suspension for the four yellow cards he collected this season, making him eligible for inclusion in Coach Milutin Sredojevic’s match day squad for this weekend.
The Buccaneers are scheduled to host Polokwane City at the Orlando Stadium on Saturday evening. Sredojevic’s side has been impressive so far in 2018, with two successive wins against Baroka FC and Sundowns respectively.
Abbubaker Mobara captained Bucs against Downs in Matlaba’s absence. Prior to being disrupted by injury on his progress this season, Matlaba missed only one match in the current Absa Premiership campaign.
