Orlando Pirates Have A Number Of Injury Concerns

Orlando Pirates have a number of injury concerns going into this weekend’s crucial Soweto Derby against Kaizer Chiefs.
 
Take a look through Pirates' injury list in the gallery above 
 
The Buccaneers beat Chippa United over the weekend as they closed the gap on Mamelodi Sundowns to just four points, making their encounter with the Glamour Boys even more important. 
 
 
It has already been confirmed that Thabiso Kutumela is out for the season due to a knee injury, but there are also other injury situations that are currently being monitored by Milutin Sredojevic and his technical team. 
 
Micho’s assistant coach, Rulani Mokwena, gave an update this week on player availability at present, discussing who is a doubt for the Amakhosi clash.  
 
Mokwena told the media, “We’ve got a couple of concerns from the game against Chippa. Jackson had a little bit of a concussion scare, but he’s been checked and granted permission to train and be part of the team. We have a concern with Xola Mlambo, he’s gone for further assessment. We’ll only get feedback later. Musa Nyatama had a dead leg but should be ok in two to three days.
 
“Diamond Thopola is out with a groin strain, he’s still doing rehabilitation. He’s out for maybe another two weeks.” 
 
 
There is some good news though, with Augustine Mulenga nearing a return, and Gladwin Shitolo, Abubakker Mobara and Mpho Makola all back for the Buccaneers.
 
Mokwena added, “Mulenga is 90% back, he should be taking part in proper training for this entire week, he’s about ready to go. He hasn’t missed much, but we had to be a little bit careful with it because it’s knee ligaments. Wayne has a left finger fracture and is doing in-field training, they say that he’ll be out for a week or two. 
 
“Shitolo is back, he’s taken part in training. Mobara is back, Mpho Makola is back also. Apart from Kutumela, we are close to having a 0% medical department, hopefully, it stays like that.”
 
Pirates and Chiefs lock horns at the FNB Stadium on Saturday at 15h30.
