Orlando Pirates Trio Back In Training Ahead Of Big Fixture

Orlando Pirates is currently in a bad period in terms of results. They have failed to get a win in their last 4 games domestically. This led to some frustration from the fans as they called for the coaches to ring some changes. The biggest issue has been injuries with a couple of key players out. There can't be any excuses for a big team like the Buccaneers, however this has affected the team to some degree in terms of experience.

The Buccaneers will be up against the in form Sekhukhune United and this will definitely be a good clash. Then the penultimate feature will be on the weekend against their oldest rivals Kaizer Chiefs and this is always going to important and worth much more than 3 points. They will need some of the players back for this game as a lot will be on the line.

The trio of Thembinkosi Lorch, Zakhele Lepasa and Goodman Mosele was seen returning to training. This comes after Lorch and Lepasa picked up injuries, however Mosele hasn't played since his controversial issue with Bafana Bafana. This left fans excited with the prospect that they might be fit for Kaizer Chiefs as Lorch and Lepasa are known for performing and scoring against Amakhosi.

There has been no update from the club in terms of their injuries, however it is a step in a good direction for the club. Thembinkosi Lorch was said to be out for the rest of the year, however this suggests that he might return sooner than expected. These are the issues which are beyond the control of the technical team as the league charge has slowly been fading away.

Zakhele Lepasa hasn't tasted any action since December 2020 and it is almost a year. The star has had troubles through rehabilitation, however he looks to also be taking strides towards returning to the field. It will be interesting to see how Goodman Mosele will be reintegrated to the starting line up following the return of Thabang Monare and Ben Motshwari to the set up.
