Lennox Bacela and Thandani Ntshumayelo should both be available for Orlando Pirates’ 2015 Caf Confederation Cup meeting with Guinea’s AS Kaloum on June 6 after recovering from injury.

Striker Bacela has been out for three weeks with an abductor strain, while midfielder Ntshumayelo has also been missing for three weeks with a respiratory tract infection. But the Orlando Pirates official twitter feed confirmed yesterday that both are now back with the team.

Pirates are on the brink of qualifying for the group stages of the Confederation Cup after a 2-0 win over Kaloum in Mali in the first leg.

The second leg is set to be played at Orlando Stadium.
