Who Will Start For Bucs In Defence?

Orlando Pirates have been boosted by the return of Thabo Matlaba and Happy Jele, following their suspensions, along with the swift return of central defender Siyabonga Sangweni. Who will start in defence for Pirates in Sunday's CAF Champions League clash with Al Ahly?

Bucs’ back four of Happy Jele, Rooi Mahamutsa, Siyabonga Sangweni and Patrick Phungwayo kept a clean sheet against Absa Premiership new boys Polokwane City in midweek, however the team's performance in general was far from their best.

Pirates captain Lucky Lekgwathi was rested in Bucs’ midweek clash with City, although it remains to be seen whether it was to keep him fresh for Sunday’s CAF Champions League match, or if he’ll be further rested for Tuesday evening’s MTN8 semi-final clash against arch rivals Kaizer Chiefs.

Andile Jali will play no part in Bucs’ CAF Champions League clash this Sunday, after suffering an injury to his shoulder in Bucs’ 1-0 win over Polokwane City. Jali is due to undergo an operation on his shoulder, which will see him side-lined for up to six weeks.
