Orlando Pirates coach Rhulani Mokwena will be boosted by the return of defenders Mthokozisi Dube and Thabiso Monyane for Tuesday night’s clash with Polokwane City.
Dube has been sidelined for the last two games after being sent off in the Telkom Knockout Cup quarter-final clash with Kaizer Chiefs a few weeks ago, while Monyane will return from national team duty at the Caf U23 Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Egypt.
With captain Happy Jele still sidelined serving the last of his own two-game suspension, the return of the duo will add to Mokwena’s defensive options as they look to get their season back on track against an out-of-form Rise and Shine.

Pirates have leaked a lot of goals and will be looking to improve at the back starting with the clash at the Orlando Stadium on Tuesday.
The Sea Robbers have also reportedly roped in Cape Town City’s Ivorian defender Kouassi Kouadja on trial as they look for further reinforcements at the back.
