Bidvest Wits hit by injuries, suspensions ahead of Orlando Pirates showdown


Attacker Mogakolodi Ngele and defender Buhle Mkhwanazi face uncertainty over their availability after sustaining injuries in the 1-0 victory over Mamelodi Sundowns on Monday evening.

Ngele is set to undergo a scan on his groin, while Mkhwanazi, who was seen limping for the majority of the second half, will have his knee assessed.

Right-back Nazeer Allie is still recovering from a toe fracture, and faces another two weeks on the sidelines before he returns to full training.

Midfielder Xola Mlambo suffered a grade two hamstring tear last week Monday and could miss another four to five weeks depending on his response to treatment and rehabilitation.

Meanwhile, Granwald Scott and Daine Klate are both suspended for Thursday evening, with the former picking up his fourth caution and the latter facing a two-match suspension after picking up a red card – the first of his career – against The Brazilians.
