Orlando Pirates have been boosted with the return of a star in their preparations for the upcoming match.

After missing the fixture against Maritzburg United as the Buccaneers went down 1-0 in Pietermaritzburg on Sunday, Deon Hotto has recovered from injury and is in line for selection for this weekend’s clash against TS Galaxy.

Prior to missing the Maritzburg fixture, Hotto had featured in all seven of Bucs’ matches in league and cup, respectively, and has scored one goal and provided an assist.

With Bucs aiming to keep up with the teams at the top of the DStv Premiership standings, after both Mamelodi Sundowns and Richards Bay FC, won their respective matches, Hotto’s return is a big boost for head coach Jose Riveiro and the team.

Meanwhile, Pirates have had injury concerns since the start of the season, with the likes of Thembinkosi Lorch, Evidence Makgopa and Terrence Dzvukamanja having had knocks which have affected their progress.
