Is Thembinkosi Lorch Orlando Pirates lucky charm?

Orlando Pirates might have found the most effective way to make progress - ensure Thembinkosi Lorch scores!

Unquestionably, the Buccaneers have NEVER lost an association match in which their star left-winger has scored an objective.

Since joining the Soweto monsters over a long time back in January 2017 from Chippa United, the 28-year-old has tracked down the rear of the net on 17 events - and Orlando Pirates have gone on and on forever up failures in those matches (W12, D4, L0).


For those doing the maths, Lorch scored two times in a similar match in the 2018/19 season.

Speaking of lucky charm

Lorch scored his most memorable objective of the 2021/22 DStv Premiership season in a 4-1 win against Maritzburg United at the Orlando Stadium on Tuesday, to keep Orlando Pirates' expectations of a CAF Champions League spot next season alive.

Orlando Pirates next face an away conflict against Royal AM on Friday, 27 May prior to completing their mission against SuperSport United next Monday, 30 May - likewise away from home. Both those matches will start off at 19:30.
