Cape Town - Orlando Pirates coach Eric Tinkler has admitted he is considering the option to register Tendai Ndoro for CAF Confederation Cup participation.

The Zimbabwe international, who joined Pirates from Mpumalanga Black Aces on a reported three-year deal in the off-season, made his debut as a substitute in Pirates' Carling Black Label Cup victory over Soweto rivals Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday.

While he was initially omitted from Eric Tinkler's squad for the CAF competition, it seems Ndoro could be thrust into the limelight following injuries to Kermit Erasmus and Thamsanqa Gabuza.

"Thankfully, I have left that one space open to register someone," Tinkler told Sowetan Live. "If our strikers will be out for a long time, then we need to consider that option [registering Ndoro].

"Kermit Erasmus picked up a hamstring injury during training. We rested him for two days. We did a final assessment on him and he was still a major concern.

"When Gabuza went down I wanted to take [Lehlohonolo] Majoro off. Majoro is the only player I have left as a striker who is registered for the Confed Cup.

"Thabo Matlaba picked up a hamstring injury. He should be out for a month. We also have to worry about fatigue."
