Cape Town - Orlando Pirates midfielder Nkosinathi Mthiyane has been ruled out of the final Absa Premiership clash of the year against Free State Stars this weekend.

According to the club’s official website, Mthiyane came off the bench to play the last ten minutes in the Buccaneers’ 1-1 draw against Amazulu, injured his quad earlier in the week and will need to undergo physiotherapy for treatment.

Meanwhile, Thembinkosi Lorch is said to be nearing full recovery from a hamstring strain that saw him miss the previous two matches.

It remains to be seen whether the winger will form part of the travelling squad as he is still experiencing pain and discomfort. The 24-year old is expected to undergo a late fitness test.

Another player who looks set to miss the trip to the Free State is Thabo Qalinge. The 26-year old is still recovering from a groin strain which has kept him out of action for the last three weeks.
