Riyaad Norodien is close to returning to full fitness.
The news of the 22-year old’s imminent return will be welcomed by Micho Sredojevic and his technical team, as Pirates enter yet another gruelling month in the Absa Premiership.
According to the Bucs medical team, the enterprising attacking midfielder has been training well and the Strength and Conditioning team is satisfied with his progress.
Norodien has been out for over a month, having suffered a foot injury while on international duty with Bafana Bafana.
Meanwhile, Thamsanqa Sangweni is still out of action as he continues to receive treatment on his knee.
