Orlando Pirates defender Marc van Heerden is available for Tuesday's league clash with title contenders SuperSport United at Orlando Stadium.

The 28-year-old, a January signing from Chippa United, missed the club's last three matches due to a grade 1 muscle (quad) tear sustained in the defeat to Bidvest Wits on February 15.

According to Pirates' website, fellow left-back Patrick Phungwayo will continue to be monitored after taking a slight knock in the Soweto Derby stalemate with Kaizer Chiefs on the weekend, while wingers Thabo Qalinge (back) and Thabo Rakhale (hamstring) face a "couple" of weeks on the sidelines with their respective injuries.

Bucs will be desperate to snap a 11-game winless run against SuperSport, who thumped them 6-1 in the reverse fixture, a result which triggered the resignation of coach Muhsin Ertugral in November.

Swede Kjell Jonevret took over the reins from caretaker coach Augusto Palacios last month, overseeing 1-1 draws with Polokwane City and Chiefs in his first two matches in charge.
