Cape Town - Orlando Pirates coach Kjell Jonevret says striker Ayanda Nkosi has impressed him and is likely to be getting more regular game-time.

Nkosi has featured in only four league matches for Bucs this season, his latest appearance a 10-minute cameo off the bench during Saturday's 0-0 draw against Highlands Park.

It was the first game-time the former Maritzburg United and Free State Stars marksman has enjoyed since the arrival of Jonevret, and the Swede has backed him to play more regularly.

"He has been positive," Jonevret was quoted saying by KickOff website.

"He was close that he should have been with us and played a little bit more one or two weeks ago, but he got an injury at the last training (session) before the league game against Free State Stars.

"He has been positive. He works hard at training. He is really a nice guy. We are going see more of him."

Pirates are next in action when they take on Bloemfontein Celtic in a Nedbank Cup quarter-final clash at the Orlando Stadium on Saturday night.
