Orlando Pirates coach Josef Zinnabuer says Tshegofatso Mabasa and Zakhale Lepasa are close to making returns from their injuries and one or both could feature in some way against Uthongathi. Tshego Mabasa was on rehabilitation with the strength and conditioning team for about 3 weeks now for a foot injury while for Zakhele lepasa it was his ankle.

Orlando Pirates start their hunt for a 2nd trophy this season when they play host to GladAfrica Championship side Uthongathi in a Nedbank Cup round of 32 match at Orlando Stadium.

After Zinnbauer was intensely criticized for sidelining center back Thulani Hlatshwayo in their disappointing loss at Golden Arrows on Tuesday, the Bafana Bafana captain should return to the starting team against Uthongathi.

It is the first ever meeting between Pirates and Uthongathi in any competition. Orlando Pirates have to be aware that they face a likely and potential upset from a side that narrowly missed the PSL promotin play-off spot last season. Pirates should make things right by picking up an expected victory.
