Orlando Pirates newcomer Augustine Mulenga is expected to be out for the next two weeks with a knee injury.
The Zambian Footballer of the Year, who is still awaiting his work permit, sustained the knock in training.
The forward was signed in January from Zanaco.
Pirates released a statement on their website, part of which reads: 'The 27-year-old, who is expected to get his work permit later this week injured himself in training and is expected to be out for at least two weeks.
'According to the Bucs medical staff, Mulenga strained his knee after attempting to shoot whilst in an awkward position.
'The Zambian international has since seen a specialist who has allayed fears of any extensive damage and has recommended that the player rest and treat his strain.'
Meanwhile, fellow recruit Diamond Thopola is doubtful to face his former employers Chippa United at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth on Sunday.
The fullback strained a quad in the 2-0 win over Ajax Cape Town.
