Pirates Give Squad Update

Ahead of their penultimate DStv Premiership match of the season against TS Galaxy, Orlando Pirates have given an update on player availability.

Third-placed Pirates are still in hot contention for the coveted second spot and CAF Champions League qualification, and will be looking to bounce back after their surprise loss to Richards Bay last week.

Jose Riveiro will be pleased to welcome back in-form midfielder, Thalente Mbatha after he served his one match suspension.

Pirates have also said they are hoping to have Deon Hotto back, with the Namibian on course with his rehabilitation.

“Thalente Mbatha returns to add to coach Jose Riveiro’s options in the midfield, following his absence from the team that faced Richards Bay,” the club confirmed on their website.

“The 24-year-old is again eligible for selection having served his one-match suspension.

“The Buccaneers could soon be bolstered further by the return of Deon Hotto, who continues his recovery after picking up a knock in the Nedbank Cup semifinal triumph over Chippa United.”
