Orlando Pirates winger Riyaad Norodien is close to regaining full fitness, according to Bucs' medical team.
Norodien's return to competitive football has been labelled 'imminent' on the club's official website as he continues strength and conditioning training.
The 22-year-old has been sidelined for over a month after picking up a knock on international duty with Bafana Bafana.
Meanwhile, midfielder Thamsanqa Sangweni is also back in training and could feature against Platinum Stars in Soweto on October 18 after the FIFA international break.
Sangweni has been out since sustaining an injury in the first game of the season against his former club Chippa United at Orlando Stadium on August 28.
The Sea Robbers next visit Polokwane City at Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday night boosted by the signing of Zambian striker Justin Shonga.
