Mhlongo ruled out for 6 weeks
The Orlando Pirates Duo, Goalkeeper Brighton Mhlongo and Thabo Rakhale were ruled out for the game against SuperSport United after picking up a knee injury and strained abductor muscle respectively.
According to the medical department, Mhlongo has suffered what appears to be a torn knee ligament injury. He has been taken to see a specialist to determine the full extent of his injury and he will be out for six weeks.
Pirates are taking on Chippa United at La Farge Orlando Stadium in their second league match. Pirates will be hoping for maximum points after they lost their opening game to Supersport in Polokwane.
