Orlando Pirates fans will have to wait a little longer before they see some of the club's new signings in action, specifically Onyekachi Okonkwo and Takesure Chinyama.
Pirates host Bloemfontein Celtic in the MTN8 quarterfinals on Friday night, but Bucs coach Augusto Palacios has warned that Okonkwo and Chinyama are not ready for action … just yet.
“Err, not yet. The two players are working on their physical condition. Okonkwo is about 80 per cent to full fitness and Takesure is a very good player, but the physical trainer Japhet [Borges] is still working on him,” Palacios says.
“Now those two players are not ready to play," he adds.
Bucs' other new signings, Patrick Phungwayo, Ayanda Gcaba, Manti Moholo and Mpho Makola, are on par with the rest of the squad in terms of fitness and it is likely they may be considered for the Celtic clash.
