The Buccaneers will be looking to return back into the top three with a win this evening, which will importantly see them climb above rivals Kaizer Chiefs, albeit with three additional matches being played.

Baroka FC on the other hand will be desperate to climb out of the relegation zone and they’ll need a full three points from their clash against Orlando Pirates to do so!

We’re desperate for a top two finish – Ncikazi

“This win is highly important. This game and our next game against Baroka puts us back in the fight for second position. Let’s hope that other teams drop points in the process,” Orlando Pirates co-coach Mandla Ncikazi told Sowetan.

“We are just missing one part, we are not scoring goals. If you look at all our games, Golden Arrows, Cape Town City, Kaizer Chiefs, we deserved to win.” Ncikazi said previously about Orlando Pirates’ goal scoring crisis.

“We created more chances than the opponents. When you set up your team, you want to create chances and score them, but what gets missed in our play is scoring,

“I am sure in all the draws we have played in the league Orlando Pirates were the dominant team. But I understand partly that we are a team with players that are only coming in now, lots of players didn’t go through pre-season, but we are here.”
