Orlando Pirates interim co-coach Fadlu Davids has revealed that their star Bafana Bafana international Thembinkosi Lorch is out for the season through injury.
Speaking after his team's 1-0 win past Moroka Swallows FC on Saturday, Davids said "The Ghost" won't be seeing Lorch for the remainder of the Premier Soccer League season.
"Lorch, we won't see him for the rest of the year; he's out with a long-term injury," Davids told KickOff after Saturday's match.
Pirates needed a Tshegofatso Mabasa header in the second half to down Swallows and moved to second on the DStv Premiership standings on five points after three matches.
The match overall was a tight affair with some decent defending a few clear-cut chances.
