Lorch, Castro in battle to increase Soweto Derby tally

Soweto Derby

Thembinkosi Lorch and Leonardo Castro will go into tomorrow's Soweto Derby looking to increase their tally in the big fixture.

The Orlando Pirates’ medical team is believed to be working around the clock in order to get "Nyoso' fit for tomorrow's encounter against rivals Kaizer Chiefs.

Amakhosi striker Castro has scored four times in the derby and will be looking to overtake the Pirates attacker who has netted five times.

Ex-Buccaneer Benedict 'Tso' Vilakazi who retired with four goals under his name in the big derby, says chances of the two players finding the back of the net at Orlando Stadium are very slim.

"One, we need to look at, do those guys have providers? It seems both teams can't create opportunities,” Vilakazi tells Kickoff.com.

"Between the two of them I can't guarantee who is going to score, it will be through luck if any of these teams manage to score tomorrow.

"As for Lorch's recent performances, it has been questionable, I really don't get it, you can't play as a number 10, the next thing we see you making a tackle at the back.

"If you do that then who is gonna create chances for strikers?

"Based on what I've seen so far, none of the two players will score on Saturday."
