Patrick Phungwayo to start for Orlando Pirates
Posted: 8 April 2015 Time: 13:31
Patrick Phungwayo is set to play his first game this year when Orlando Pirates host Platinum Stars in the Absa Premiership at Orlando Stadium tonight.
The left-back has been sidelined with a knee injury he sustained on Bafana Bafana duty before the start of the Africa Cup of Nations, but could slot straight into the starting XI tonight given Thabo Matlaba’s unavailability.
"Phungwayo is part of the team to play Platinum Stars tonight,” a Pirates official tells KickOff.com.
Happy Jele is expected to start in the centre of defence given Siyabonga Sangweni and Tshepo Gumede’s injuries.
