Cape Town - Orlando Pirates have announced that Thembinkosi Lorch, Justin Shonga, Xola Mlambo, Augustine Mulenga, Ben Motshwari, Vincent Pule and Happy Jele are nominees for the Player of the Month award, for November.

Lorch and Shonga in particular appear to be favourites for the award as they hit three goals in five games during the month.

Meanwhile, Mlambo and Mulenga were also on target for the Sea Robbers. However, it could be either Motshwari or Jele that could take the prize for their defensive displays for Pirates.

In addition, Pule is also said to have played a significant role from more of a midfield position.

The club's official website said: "Fans can vote for the winner on Bucs' Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts before the competition closes on December 14.

"Fans are encouraged to vote for their Ford Goal of the Month on the Club's official social media channels.

"Winners will be selected across Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube (PiratesTV). Each winner will receive a hamper sponsored by Ford South Africa, the Official Vehicle Partner of Orlando Pirates.

"One lucky winner will receive the Ultimate VIP Match-Day Experience at the next Orlando Pirates home game held at Orlando Stadium."
