Orlando Pirates are set to welcome back midfielder Gladwin Shitolo when they take on Platinum Stars in the league at Royal Bafokeng Stadium on Wednesday.

Shitolo was handed his first Bucs start in a 2-2 draw with Highlands Park at Orlando Stadium towards the end of last year.

The former Jomo Cosmos man then missed subsequent 2-1 defeats to Maritzburg United and Bloemfontein Celtic before the festive break after injuring his knee at training.

However, Shitolo is in line to make his comeback against Dikwena alongside returning midfielder Thembinkosi Lorch and new signing James Okwuosa.

Ghanaian Edwin Gyimah is doubtful for the game after being involved at the recently concluded African Nations Cup in Gabon.
