Thembinkosi Lorch and Terrence Dzvukamanja injury update ahead of Soweto Derby second leg


Orlando Pirates interim coach Fadlu Davids has provided an update on the injuries of Thembinkosi Lorch and Terrence Dzvukamanja.

Lorch and Dzvukamanja were both forced off during Pirates 1-0 victory over Bloemfontein Celtic at Dr Molemela Stadium on Wednesday evening.

The pair sustained what looked to be worrying injuries ahead of this weekend's MTN8 semi-final second leg against arch rivals Kaizer Chiefs.

Davids, who has taken charge in the absence of head coach Josef Zinnbauer, has since admitted that both players' chances of returning for Saturday are quite bleak.

"It does not look good for both players, Dzvukamanja looks like a head injury. Having come to the club with a concussion, we'll get a report from the doctor afterwards," said Davids after the match.

"Lorch is similar with his knee, having to go off early in the first half. It's still too early to tell, we don't know, we'll get the report and I'm sure he'll go for a scan tomorrow [Thursday] and then we'll assess what the next step is."
