Pirates injury update

Orlando Pirates

Myeni has been struggling on and off with a knee injury, but the coach says he should be fit for the first leg of the Final against Al Ahly at Orlando Stadium on Saturday.

The 25-year-old came on as a substitute in the draw against Kaizer Chiefs, replacing goal scorer Kermit Erasmus on 54 minutes.

“It was a light knock, nothing serious and it is not the same leg where he has had previous problems,” De Sa says on SuperSport.

Bucs are still missing Patrick Phungwayo, who is out until January with an Achilles injury, and Siyabonga Sangweni, who is expected back in action after Christmas, also with an Achilles injury.

But De Sa says he is not about to dwell on the injury list.

“If we are not ready now, we’ll never be ready,” he says.
