One start in all competitions: Ex-Pirates attacker facing uncertain future at Sekhukhune

An ex-Orlando Pirates attacker is facing an uncertain future at Sekhukhune United following continued struggles with game time.

Babina Noko have been in a good run of form in the second round of the 2023/24 DStv Premiership, and they occupy the fourth spot on the log standings with 41 points. In their 12 matches in the league in 2024, Sekhukhune United won six games, drew five and lost only once.

The impressive form saw head coach Lehlohonolo Seema and club captain Linda Mntambo win Coach of the Month and Player of the Month, respectively, for February/March.


With the season ending in the next few weeks, the Limpopo-based side will review its squad, and Collins Makgaka’s future is in doubt.

Makgaka joined Sekhukhune in October 2023 on a free transfer after parting company with the Soweto giants last season. The former Baroka FC star has found it difficult to knot down a regular starting berth at Sekhukhune after starting only one match.

Makgaka’s only start in Sekhukhune’s colours came in the Carling Knockout Cup when they faced TS Galaxy late last year.

The 27-year-old has made three appearances across all competitions and he’s yet to start a match in the Premiership.

“Collins Makgaka is one of the players who will have their future decided in the coming weeks. Sekhukhune is looking to make changes in their squad,” a source said.

“Looking at his numbers at Sekhukhune, his form has been a bit disappointing considering the position he plays. He’s expected to score goals and provide assists, but unfortunately, he hasn’t managed to do that.”

Meanwhile, Daniel Cardoso, Sibusiso Vilakazi, Kgomotso Mosadi, and Edwin Gymah are the other Sekhukhune United players facing bleak futures.
