Cape Town - Orlando Pirates will be without the suspended Thembinkosi Lorch for Saturday's top of the table Absa Premiership clash against Wits.

Lorch has been a major attacking influence for the Sea Robbers by netting 11 goals in all competitions as well as providing five assists in the PSL.

The forward picked up his third yellow card of the season in the 0-0 draw with Mamelodi Sundowns on Monday night.

The 25-year-old is considered to be a strong contender for the Player of the Season crown in South Africa's top flight and will no doubt be missed against the Clever Boys.

Currently, Bucs are tied on 41 points with Wits but hold second position in the standings due to a superior goal difference.

Meanwhile, Sundowns top the table on 44 points after 24 matches played in 2018/19.

Pirates are also sweating on goalkeeper Wayne Sandilands due to a head knock he picked up against the Brazilians.

In addition, Luvuyo Memela could also be out due to a leg wound he picked up in a challenge with Hlompho Kekana.

Saturday's action is set to get underway from 15:00 at the Bidvest Stadium in Johannesburg.
