Good news for Orlando Pirates as Lorch is expected to play on this date. At the beginning of the 2021/2022 season Orlando Pirates were a shadow of themselves as they strung a series of below par performances and also missing key players.

 

The Buccaneers were then no exception in making coaching changes for the 2021/22 season. However, their slow start to the season was also contributed by the absence of key players such as Thembinkosi Lorch and Happy Jele.

The Sea Robbers’ co-coach Mandla Ncikazi has provided an update that may excite the team’s faithful fans, that’s about Lorch and Jele’s injury before Thursday’s clash with Baroka FC.

The team has also been without their influential captain Happy Jele, who last saw action in October when he succumbed to an injury against Royal AM. With Lorch also having been on the sidelines, Pirates’ attack was depleted since then. The attacker has since gone through a successful surgery to fix his shoulder.

The duo is set to be in action this month and Jele pipped to start today’s game versus Baroka as per to co-coach Mandla Ncikazi’s revelation.

 

He revealed, “Lorch is back. He had a shoulder injury. We are avoiding contact with him, he has started training partially with him, so i’m hopeful that he can play before the end of December. Jele is also back and he might play on Thursday against Baroka.”

 

The excited Ncikazi also added, “I’m happy that they have started training with the team, but we’re still cautious because they have some processes he must go through.”
