“Abbubaker Mobara has been ruled out of the Absa Premiership encounter against Chippa United tonight due to injury,” read a statement on Pirates’ website

“Fortunately, the Bucs Medical Team have assessed the full extent of the injury and it has been revealed that Mobara will return within a week.”
