Cape Town - Orlando Pirates will be without the services of Thembinkosi Lorch for the third match in a row ahead of Wednesday's clash with SuperSport United.

Lorch has not featured for Pirates since his Man-of-the-Match display in the Carling Black Label Cup final victory over Kaizer Chiefs.

He missed the opening day win over Bloemfontein Celtic as well as the CAF Champions League preliminary round first leg defeat to Zambia's Green Eagles.

Pirates' official website said: "Meanwhile, Footballer of the Season Thembinkosi Lorch looks set to miss out on the Buccaneers' third consecutive game due to an injury.

"Another player set to miss out on the match is right back Mthokozisi Dube who is still recovering from a shoulder injury."

The Sea Robbers face SuperSport at the Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit.

Kick-off is 19:30.
