According to reports Thembinkosi Lorch could be set for a return to the Orlando Pirates team for Tuesday night’s clash with Polokwane City.
The reigning Absa Premiership Footballer of the Season has missed the last three games for the Sea Robbers, the first two through suspension after a red card against Polokwane City before he was left out of the 1-1 draw with Bloemfontein Celtic in their first game of the year.
With rumours circling that the 26-year-old is interested in a move away from Pirates with reported interest from Europe, he looks set to return for the Buccanneers after travelling with the squad to Polokwane for the match against Rise and Shine, according to a SoccerLaduma report.

Lorch has struggled to recapture last season’s form and hasn’t scored a single goal this season, while he is also yet to feature under new head coach Joe Zinnbauer.
Whether Lorch will play a part from the bench or be drafted into the starting XI remain to be seen, but the winger will be desperate to play again and regain his form.
