Bucs suffer Pule, Nyauza setback


Orlando Pirates have given an update regarding the injury concerns of 2 key players Ntsikelelo Nyauza and Vincent Pule.

Both players suffered the injuries during the Absa Premiership 2-all draw against Baroka in Polokwane this past Saturday.

Defender Nyauza suffered a minor hamstring strain, but the good news is that it is a Grade 1 strain and he is only expected to be out for between 4-5 days.

Forward Pule suffered a Grade 2 hamstring strain and is expected to be out of action for between 7-10 days.

With the Buccaneers next match against Black Leopards on Saturday, 21 December, Pule is like to be back in action only in 2020 while there is still time for Nyauza to recover in time before the match at Orlando Stadium.

The Club has also reported Minor Knocks on Justin Shonga (thigh) and Joris Delle (fever) but the pair are also likely to be available for Pirates’ last match of the year.
