Thembinkosi Lorch is set to undergo surgery next week and will miss out the remainder of the season. Lorch, who injured his shoulder in the goalless draw against Highlands Park, is due to go under the knife next week.
According to the medical department, Lorch has suffered trauma to his joint capsule and ligaments which require surgical intervention.
The loss of Lorch has been cushioned by the return from injury of wingers Thabo Rakhale and Thabo Qalinge. The two enterprising wingers, made their returns to action in Orlando Pirates’ recent Nedbank Cup victory over Bloemfontein Celtic.
The Bucs medical department has also given updates on Thabiso Kutumela and Mahlatsi Makudubela. According to the report, both players are undergoing rehabilitation for their respective injuries. Kutumela has been complaining of pain after a knock to the knee during training while Makudubela suffered a strain in his quad muscle after tackle during training.
Both players continue to be assessed and will continue with their respective rehabilitation programmes.
