Cape Town - The Orlando Pirates medical
department has been hard at work this past week as they have been trying to get
some first team regulars available for the Absa Premiership match against
SuperSport United on Tuesday evening.
According to the club’s official website, the
Buccaneers played a friendly match against the Reserve Team (Under 23s) last
Midfielder Thabo Qalinge didn’t play any
part of the friendly (which the first team won 3-1) as he was being treated for
a minor knock.
Striker Thamsanqa Gabuza also didn’t play
any part of the match due to the flu but the burly marksman is expected to
recover in time for the match tomorrow.
Meanwhile, left-back Innocent Maela
continues to undergo rehabilitation as he nears full recovery.
The medical department confirmed that Maela
is progressing well and is currently working on strengthening work.
Kick-off is at 19:30.
