Orlando Pirates midfielder Thembinkosi Lorch is set to return to court on the 13th of November 2020.

Lorch was arrested last month on allegations of assault against his girlfriend Nokhupiwa Mathithibala in Midrand.

The 27 year old soccer star was later charged with assault with an intent to cause grievous bodily harm before being released on R2000 bail.

National Prosecuting Authority spokesperson Phindi Mjonondwane confirmed that Lorch was back in court on Tuesday but his case was postponed to November the 13th.

The case was postponed in order for Thembinkosi’s representatives to apply for representation.

Lorch is expected to be in the Pirates squad tonight when they clash with Stellenbosch F.C at Orlando Stadium in their next Dstv Premiership match.
