Cape Town - Orlando Pirates coach Muhsin Ertugral has confirmed that Edwin Gyimah will not feature in the Telkom Knockout tie against Golden Arrows due to a tendon injury.

The 25-year-old defender picked up an injury whilst on international duty with Ghana in their 1-1 draw against South Africa after coming on as a second-half substitute.

"Gyimah - on his tendon has a big problem," Ertugral told reporters.

"You know, the tendon doesn't have it's own blood circulation so any other contact can burst that maybe, which could be a problem so we'll see. Yesterday he trained and went back in the dressing room again," he concluded

The Ghana international was recently embroiled in an altercation with the Turkish mentor at the Cape Town International Airport. However, the two have since made up.

Gyimah's position is expected to be filled by Justice Chabalala or Happy Jele on Saturday at the Orlando Stadium. Kick-off is at 15:00.

Pirates defeated Arrows 3-1 in their Absa Premiership encounter on the opening weekend the season, with forward Tendai Ndoro netting a hat-trick.
