Chansa boost for Buccaneers

Johannesburg - Orlando Pirates finally have some good news after their Soweto derby demolition at the hands of Kaizer Chiefs as Isaac Chansa has resumed full training.

The midfielder has been sidelined for nearly a month due to an ankle injury and missed both showdowns with Bucs' arch-rivals.

It was the Zambian who netted a cracker against Amakhosi in the first leg of the MTN semi-final back in September and his bite has been missing in the middle of the park for Pirates.

"I am very excited that I have finally got over my injury after three weeks on the sidelines," he told the club's official website.

"It was very frustrating because I missed a lot of action but I had to be patient. Now that I have resumed full training with the team, I can't wait to play."

However, Bucs may be without the services of right winger Dikgang Mabalane who has a suspected groin strain following the Telkom Knockout final defeat to Chiefs.

'Terminator' will undergo a scan to determine the extent of the injury.
