Orlando Pirates have provided an update on the latest status of injured trio Ben Motshwari, Abel Mabaso and Kabelo Dlamini.
Motshwari is nearing full recovery after sustaining a grade-2 strain to his knee during their Absa Premiership clash with AmaZulu on 20 August.
Meanwhile, the club’s medical team confirmed that Mabaso is also close to full recovery from a grade-1 hamstring tear, while Dlamini is currently undergoing physiotherapy treatment.
The Soweto giants’ statement reads:
‘Heading the list of injuries is that of Ben Motshwari who has been out for the past four weeks due to a Grade 2 strain to the knee which he suffered in the Absa Premiership clash against Amazulu.
‘Motshwari is nearing full recovery, however, there will be no rushing the 28-year-old back to the field to avoid reaggravating the injury. Motshwari is said to be doing well and is experiencing minimal discomfort on the site of the injury. He will continue to undergo rehabilitation as they work on getting the hard-running midfielder back to full training.
‘According to the medical team, versatile player Abel Mabaso is nearing full recovery from a Grade 1 hamstring tear that he suffered two weeks ago. Mabaso, who is yet to feature this season, is currently training with the Biokineticist and is expected to return to full training at the end of the week.
‘Meanwhile, Kabelo Dlamini picked up a knock in the 3-all draw against Cape Town City over the weekend. The 23-year-old is currently undergoing physiotherapy treatment and will be reassessed on Thursday before being cleared to join the rest of the team.’
