Bucs defender doubtful against City

Orlando Pirates could be without the services of defender, Thapelo Xoki, when they taken on Cape Town City in the DStv Premiership on Saturday.

The 28-year-old was injured and stretchered off the field in the Nedbank Cup match against Dondol Stars.

The centre back has been a regular fixture for the Buccaneers this season – he missed five of the 25 league matches.

Pirates are currently third on the log – one point behind second-placed Supersport Unityed – and a win will move them to the second spot.

Cape Town City beat Orlando Pirates 2-1 the last time two sides met in January.

Brice Ambina and Thabo Nodada, who were sent off against Mamelodi Sundowns and Amazulu respectively, will miss the match due to suspension.
