Brilliant Khuzwayo has yet to make his official debut for The Buccaneers since his high-profile move from Soweto rivals Kaizer Chiefs. Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Brilliant Khuzwayo is set to return to action soon as the club provides an injury update on several other first-team stars.

The 28-year-old shot-stopper was ruled out for a month just before the season started as he required surgery to remove pins from his previously injured ankle. The club has since provided positive feedback on his recovery, but have kept fans guessing as to when exactly he will make his first competitive appearance.

“The strength and conditioning department has also worked on proprioception, lower limb strengthening, cycling and isokinetic strength where the goalkeeper has shown a lot of improvement in his testing over the past week.”
