Memela ruled out of Soweto derby

Orlando Pirates have confirmed that Luvuyo Memela has been ruled out for three weeks and will miss this weekend's Soweto derby against Kaizer Chiefs.



The 31-year-old winger was the hero in the last clash between the Soweto giants and scored a brace as the Buccaneers clinched a 3-1 victory.

Pirates also announced that veteran midfielder Musa Nyatama is also struggling with a knock and will undergo a late fitness test ahead of Saturday's meeting at FNB Stadium.

"In terms of injury doubts, winger Luvuyo Memela has been ruled out for this encounter," Bucs said on their official website.

'''Amigo' as he is affectionately known, suffered a knee strain and as a result will be out for three weeks.

"Meanwhile, midfielder Musa Nyatama is due to undergo a late fitness test after picking up a knock in the cup win over the Chilli Boys."
