Cape Town - Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Brilliant Khuzwayo is set to start the Carling Black Label Cup against Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday, July 27 if passed fit.

Khuzwayo is yet to make an appearance for the Buccaneers since joining the club ahead of the 2018/19 campaign as he is battling with a potentially career-threatening injury.

The 29-year-old is suffering with a recurring ankle problem that reportedly could lead to problems in later life if he continues playing.

A recent report suggested Pirates officials asked him to retire and take the insurance package on offer however it seems the keeper wants to keep playing.

Nonetheless, he is first choice for the CBL Cup in July if he is passed fit with the likes of Wayne Sandilands, Siyabonga Mpontshane and new signing Joris Delle behind him in the pecking order.

Pirates starting XI as per fans votes counted up to Friday 5 July:

Brilliant Khuzwayo: 26242

Mthokozisi Dube: 6757

Justice Chabalala: 7130

Innocent Maela: 11076

Happy Jele: 19187

Ben Motshwari: 6457

Luvuyo Memela: 6897

Vincent Pule: 9053

Thembinkosi Lorch: 13616

Augustine Mulenga: 31 555

Justin Shonga: 38 776
