Orlando Pirates will be up against Polokwane City FC on November 6th.

Meanwhile City have been for two weeks without their number one goalkeeper George Chigova due to a knee injury he sustained on national duty in a recent AFCON 2019 qualifier against Democratic Republic of Congo.

The 27-year-old Congo goalkeeper has played eight league games for Rise and Shine this season.

“It was a bruised bone around the knee,” says a source at the club.

 

 

“Yeah, he has started training now. He started on Tuesday. He is healing okay, we hope he will be ready for the next game.”

On the weekend the Limpopo side continued with their good run in the league by beating struggling Maritzburg United 1-0 at home.

City are fourth on the Absa Premiership table with 17 points – three points shy of leaders Bidvest Wits.
