Is Thembinkosi Lorch a lucky charm for the Orlando Pirates?

Orlando Pirates of Soweto may have uncovered the key to success: make sure Thembinkosi Lorch scores.

The Orlando Pirates may have figured out the greatest way to win: get Thembinkosi Lorch to score!

The Buccaneers have never lost a league game in which their star left-winger scores a goal.

Since joining the Soweto giants from Chippa United in January 2017, the 28-year-old has scored 17 goals — and Orlando Pirates have never lost one of those matches (W12, D4, L0).


Lorch scored twice in the same match in the 2018-19 season, for those keeping track.

What a fortunate charm!

Lorch scored his first goal of the DStv Premiership season in a 4-1 victory over Maritzburg United at Orlando Stadium on Tuesday, keeping Orlando Pirates' hopes of qualifying for the CAF Champions League next season alive.

Next up for Orlando Pirates is an away match against Royal AM on Friday, May 27th, followed by a home match against SuperSport United on Monday, May 30th.

Both matches will begin at 19:30 a.m.
