SALENG TO RETURN FOR ORLANDO PIRATES?
Zakhele Lepasa is back after serving a one-game ban in midweek. Monnapule Saleng, Miguel Timm and Relebohile Mofokeng were all substitutes against Sekhukhune, and Saleng wasn’t even used off the bench so he should be fresh. Pirates claimed a narrow 1-0 win against Babina Noko on Tuesday thanks to a goal from marauding right-back Thabiso Monyane. Chiefs, meanwhile, edged a five-goal thriller against Cape Town Spurs on Wednesday with Edson Castillo, Ranga Chivaviro and Christian Saile all on the score sheet.
