Meyiwa ruled out of Orlando Pirates clash against Free State Stars

The 26-year-old Bafana Bafana keeper injured himself last Saturday, and will not travel with his teammates to Qwaqwa to face Ea Lla Koto on Wednesday night
Orlando Pirates have confirmed that goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa will play no part in their game against Free State Stars on Wednesday night.

The Bucs shot-stopper is still struggling to recover from cramps he suffered during Pirates' 1-0 defeat to Mamelodi Sundowns last Saturday.

Meyiwa was forced to leave the pitch on the night, immediately after failing to stop Hlompho Kekana's rocket from outside the box.

He was then replaced by Ghanaian number one Fatau Dauda, who now has the opportunity to make his first Pirates start since arriving at the club at the beginning of the season.

Dauda has patiently been waiting for his chance in the Pirates colours, and with the Fifa World Cup around the corner, the 28-year-old will be looking to impress.
