Orlando Pirates will play against AC Leopards in their Champions League clash without captain Lucky Lekgwathi and Patrick Phungwayo over the weekend

According to the Orlando Pirates official website, both players will be serving their respective suspensions for the clash against AC Leopards on Saturday.

Lekgwathi said that although he will miss this crucial match, he is confident that his teammates will be prepared to soldier on without him.

“It is not nice to be out in such a crucial game, but it is just one of those things that happen in football.

“We have heard a lot about that team (AC Leopards). They are a good side; we will be required to be at our best. Fortunately we are playing at home first which gives us the psychological advantage to start on a good footing.

“We just came from Lesotho where we got good practice, so for us everything is okay. Let's just hope all goes well,” said Lekgwathi.
