Pirates boost: Mosele returns.

Orlando Pirates have received a huge boost as they have been strengthened with the return of their three stars who include Bafana midfielder, the Goodman Mosele who was said to have disappeared. The Buccaneers were without Goodman Mosele for their CAF Confederation Cup clash in Congo last week. Mosele has been one of the standout performers so far this season, as well as winger Deon Hotto and Ntsako Makhubela.

All these three players featured for the Orlando Pirates before the FIFA international break against Cape Town City, with Goodman Mosele and Makhubela named in the starting team line-up, and played the entire match, while Deon Hotto came off the bench in the second half for striker Tshegofatso Mabasa.  

With Orlando Pirates in KwaZulu-Natal for what is expected to be a tricky assignment against a Maritzburg United side also desperate for maximum points at the Harry Gwala Stadium on Wednesday afternoon, the Soweto giants have confirmed the possible return of Goodman Mosele, Deon Hotto and Makhubela. 

“Players of the likes of Deon Hotto, Ntsako Neverdie Makhubela and Goodman Mosele were all unused during Orlando Pirates’ recent trip to Congo-Brazzaville and could all be back in the reckoning against Maritzburg,” said the Club on their official statement on their website. 

Coaches Mandla Ncikazi and Fadlu Davids will take aim at securing maximum points this afternoon, with the clash scheduled for 17:30. Fadlu Davids did comment on the homecoming to Pietermaritzburg stating it is not going to be an easy game in any way.

Orlando Pirates still have the hopes of challenging log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns at the top of the standings and they will need to get things right on away territory to try and build some momentum following the international break. Ernst' men will look to spoil Davids' return to the Harry Gwala Stadium.
