Orlando Pirates have reportedly been boosted by Thamsanqa Sangweni’s return from an injury.
This has come as a welcome boost for the Buccaneers ahead of their PSL clashes against Platinum Stars and Kaizer Chiefs this week.
The central midfielder has been out nursing a knee injury which he sustained against his former side, Chippa United in a league game at the Orlando Stadium two months ago.
Bucs signed Sangweni from the Chilli Boys on a long-term deal prior to the current campaign.
The latest reports have indicated that Sangweni has resumed full training with his Pirates team-mates at the club’s training ground, Rand Stadium in Johannesburg.
The 28-year-old will be hoping to make Bucs coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic’s 18-man squad for the match against Stars which will be played at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg on Wednesday.
Pirates are scheduled to face their arch-rivals Chiefs at the same venue in the first Soweto Derby of the season on Saturday.
Before taking on Bucs, Amakhosi will square off with Mamelodi Sundowns on Tuesday in a league match at the Loftus Versfeld Stadium in Pretoria.
