Orlando Pirates have revealed that influential midfielder Ben Motshwari is closer to returning to action.
Motshwari has been out for the past four weeks due to a Grade 2 strain to the knee which he suffered in the Absa Premiership clash against AmaZulu.
However, the 28-year old is not going to be rushed back to the field to avoid reaggravating the injury.
Meanwhile, Abel Mabaso is also nearing full recovery from a Grade 1 hamstring tear that he suffered two weeks ago. Mabaso, who is yet to feature this season, is currently training with the Biokineticist and is expected to return to full training at the end of the week.
Lastly, Kabelo Dlamini picked up a knock in the 3-all draw against Cape Town City over the weekend. The 23-year-old is currently undergoing physiotherapy treatment and will be reassessed on Thursday before being cleared to join the rest of the team.
