Cape Town - Orlando Pirates coach Milutin 'Micho' Sredojevic said the club will not reveal the reason for Thamsanqa Gabuza's omission against Cape Town City on Tuesday.

Micho admitted there was an issue with the striker, but added that Pirates were not ready to reveal why he had been left out of the squad for the 1-0 win over the Citizens.

"There is something that needs to be kept within the team, that we don't want to put out in public," the Serbian was quoted as saying by TimesLIVE website on Wednesday.

"But we want to tell you that he has been out of the team for reasons known by us and we are not ready to reveal them.

"However, we shall see what will happen and whether he will be available for the game ahead Wits."

Thabo Qalinge grabbed a late winner for the Buccaneers in midweek as they to move to the Premiership summit after five games.

Their next test in the league sees Micho's side take on defending champions Bidvest Wits, who have struggled so far in the new campaign.

Kick off is at 18:00.
