Bucs defenders Rooi Mahamutsa, Happy Jele and Siyabonga Sangweni returned to training after recovering from their recent injuries.

“It’s a good sign for the team to have both defenders back in training,” revealed a Goal.com source.

“They need every player at this point in time as they fight to move out of the position where they are in the league.”

The three players’ fitness will be assessed to determine if they can make it in time for Wednesday night’s game against Free State Stars.

“It’s also good that Happy Jele is back in training which is a big boost for the team,” the Goal source added.

Mahamutsa was had a hamstring injury while Sangweni had a knee problem, and Jele’s hip troubled him for weeks.

Their return could boost Orlando Pirates’ hope to move up the table.
