Orlando Pirates is set to welcome back five players back from international duties but there could be big concerns for the club ahead of their CAF Confederations Cup encounter.
The Buccaneers had five of their players who were called to represent their national teams for the 2022 FIFA World cup qualifiers.
The players include Tshegofatso Mabasa and Vincent Pule who were both called to represent Bafana, Deon Hotto was also called to represent Namibia, Gabadinho Mhango was called in the Malawian National team and Terrence Dzvukamanja was called to represent Zimbabwe.
The Buccaneers are set to travel to Diables Noirs in Brazzaville on Friday in honour of their CAF confederations Cup encounter.
However the club is sweating over the availability of Pule.
The player was an noticeable absentee in the Bafana Bafana set up after he picked an injury on Saturday before a game against Ethiopia and he was substituted before he could enter the field of play.
It remains to be seen on whether the player will recover in time for Pirates' trip to Brazzaville.
The 29-year old has been very impressive for the Buccaneers so far this season, and he is currently the player with most assists in the league so far, his absence would come as a huge blow for the Buccaneers.
