Orlando Pirates have confirmed that their star player Thembinkosi Lorch will not be with the squad for a while, this is due to an injury he has suffered.

The attacker has a shoulder problem that has kept him on the sidelines since featuring for Pirates in the Carling Black Label Cup in early August. 

The fan favourite statt has seen him miss four competitive games the Buccaneers have played so far this season.

His coach Fadlu David's confirmed this.

"We won’t see him for the rest of the year with a long-term injury,” Davids told the media in a brief response to the question about Lorch’s injury on Saturday.

Serious fitness issues also hit Lorch last season which saw him spend 79 days out and was unavailable for 16 games after a tear in his abductor muscle. 

Pirates continue to endure playing without key players due to injuries.

Also sidelined is defender Innocent Maela, who like Lorch, featured in the Carling Black Label Cup but has been out since then with what former coach Josef Zinnbauer said is a “bone problem.”
