Orlando Pirates' Brilliant Khuzwayo making strides in return from surgery


Khuzwayo has yet to make his official debut for The Buccaneers since his high-profile move from Soweto rivals Kaizer Chiefs.

The 28-year-old shot-stopper was ruled out for a month just before the season started as he required surgery to remove pins from his previously injured ankle.

The club have since provided positive feedback on his recovery, but have kept fans guessing as to when exactly he will make his first competitive appearance.

Zambian striker Augustine Mulenga as well as Bafana Bafana defender Innocent Maela were also given the medical green light prior to linking up with their respective national teams.

Africa Cup of Nations qualifers take centre stage this weekend, with Bafana set to face Libya in Durban while Chipolopolo visit Namibia in Windhoek on Saturday.
