Cape Town - Former Orlando Pirates midfielder Dumisa Ngobe expressed his wish to see Thandani Ntshumayelo deployed in an attacking role.

Ntshumayelo, otherwise known as 'Bibo', is an all-round midfielder with enough skill to contribute in both attack and defence.

However, Ngobe wants the hard-running Ntshumayelo to play in a more advanced position in the formation.

Pirates are set to take on Etoile du Sahel in the CAF Confederation Cup final first-leg at the Orlando Stadium on November 21.

"I have always believed that Ntshumayelo was an attacking midfielder and I think he has improved a lot in the absence of Manyisa," Ngobe told Goal website.

"He makes a lot of mistakes playing as a defensive midfielder and should never play there again.

"Eric Tinkler should play the fringe players a lot more and rest his regulars who have been having injury problems.

"The fact that Pirates did not have a break due to CAF Confederation Cup commitments means that there was going to be a lot of injury problems.

"I think Tinkler should have rested the likes of Happy Jele and other key players so that they can be fully fit to play in the Confed final."
