Cape Town - Orlando Pirates have revealed Menzi Masuku faces another fortnight on the treatment table after missing the Nedbank Cup clash against Kaizer Chiefs through injury.

The 22-year-old midfielder is nursing a thigh injury, and the Bucs medical team have now placed a time frame on his recover process.

As such, Masuku should make a return to action in time for the Absa Premiership clash with Free State Stars on April 9.

Majoro is currently receiving treatment for a hamstring strain and could potentially feature in next week's visit to high-flying Bidvest Wits.
