Orlando Pirates are in danger of missing wingers Thabo Qalinge and Thembinkosi Lorch for their opening game against Highlands Park at Orlando Stadium next week.

According to a statement on the club’s website, Qalinge got injured during Pirates’ friendly match against Stellenbosch FC last weekend, while Qalinge also limped off the pitch in a friendly match against Cape Town City.

“‘Section’ as Qalinge is affectionately known, is still experiencing some discomfort and as a result, he will continue working on his rehabilitation,” read the club statement.
