Pictures| Pirates players in training ahead of Baroka clash

After a difficult start to the 2021/2022 season which was full of inconsistent results, injuries, and off-field incidents that had the club's start to the season in tatters. After months of not having a direction, the club seems to have finally found a starting eleven that will bring them results on regular basis.

Among these things that have affected their start to the season injuries play a huge role, the club has seen no less than 20 of their senior players miss some action this season due to injuries.

The likes of Thembinkosi Lorch, Happy Jele, Zakhele Lepasa, and Vincent Pule are just some of the big players that the club is currently without due to long-term injuries.

Some of their stars like Innocent Maela, Wayne Sandilands, Ntsikelelo Nyauza, and Wayde Jooste have returned to the action of play, while Lorch, Lepasa, and Jele have returned to full-contact training and their return is imminent.

Whether they will return to action this year is still unknown but very likely and could be soon as tomorrow, as they face Baroka Football Club tomorrow in the Dstv Premiership clash at Soweto Stadium, Soweto with Kick off set for 7h30 pm.


The players were hard at work today preparing for the clash that has always delivered some entertainment for neutral fans, given the clubs are not shy in front of goals.

I think the match will see the Buccaneers win their third consecutive game for the first time this season, as they have found the going to be tough this season.

As much they are excited to get their players back, they should be careful and not disturb their winning team.
