Thembinkosi Lorch faces up to five weeks on the sidelines after undergoing a procedure on his knee.
The 27-year-old attacker suffered the setback in Pirates’ 1-0 win over Bloemfontein Celtic in the DStv Premiership last week.
Fortunately for the technical team, Lorch’s injury is not a serious one. According to the Bucs medical team, Lorch underwent surgery to remove osteochondroma* in the knee. He is expected to make a full recovery.
Meanwhile, Orlandopiratesfc.com can confirm that Tshegofatso Mabasa and Bongani Sam have returned to full training after recovering from their respective injuries.
*Osteochondroma is an overgrowth of cartilage and bone that happens at the end of the bone near the growth plate.
