The 28-year-old Malawi international suffered a groin strain in the Buccaneers' 1-1 DStv Premiership draw with Stellenbosch over a month ago and had missed key encounters such as the two-legged Soweto Derby.

However, the 2019/20 league top goalscorer's absence has not been felt that much as coach Josef Zinnbauer has been able to rely on Zakhele Lepasa, who has bagged two goals in the last four games.

Bucs have also recently welcomed back Tshegofatso Mabasa, who marked his comeback with the winning goal against SuperSport United on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Lorch has progressed well in his recovery from knee surgery and has this week started rehabilitation. He will continue to be sidelined for another four weeks.
