All is set for Chiefs and Pirates to come up against each other at FNB Stadium this Saturday, as both teams want to win the trophy as well as the bragging rights for their fans.

So far, during the July/August transfer window, Amakhosi have confirmed signing Zimbabwean defender Teenage Hadebe, Philani Zulu and Bhongolethu Jayiya, while Pirates have brought in Thamsanqa Sangweni, Wayne Sandilands, Musa Nyatama and Nigerian striker Christian Obiozor.

Gcaba says the rivalry between Pirates and Chiefs is the motivation to do well.

“It’s always serious even though Carling Black Label is a fan's cup. We are not going out there to say we are playing a friendly. There’s never a friendly game against Chiefs. We know that Chiefs and Pirates are big teams. It’s always (a) rivalry. Everyone is looking for a win whether it’s a friendly or not a friendly. As much as they (Chiefs) are looking for a win, we are also looking for a win,” Gcaba told the media as shared on Twitter by the club’s Thandi Merafe.

when is he going to be shipped out because if he keeps staying put the coach will always field him against our will? When is the management going to sort out our defence problems as they have existed for a couple of seasons so far?

I think we as Orlando Pirates fans should abbandon going to stadiums for watching mediocre... we are crying over and over for 1 thing,, cows that keep our players sidelined.. we have buch of good players but they opt to play cows that don't even care about our feelings, all they do is lose, lose, lose

The shenanigans of Billiat at Sundowns were exposed exclusively by the Sunday Times this past weekend. Sundowns are reportedly unable to control the drunken behaviour of Khama Bill who on numerous occasions has gone to training reeking of alcohol. It is also said that Billiat has been on the wrong side of the law by being found drunk driving and taken to police stations and that officials from Sundowns had to rush to the cop shops to prevent him from being detained in police cells. This has been going on for some time now. He has on one occasion injured himself in the knee while wrestling with the cops who were arresting him for drunk driving in the wee hours of the morning. He situation is so uncontrollable that Sundowns has tried numerous tactics to keep him on the straight and narrow. They have even decided to select him on match day squads even though he is not gonna play in order to keep him in camp and therefore sober...this after fighting with security guards at Loftus who were refusing him entrance to the stadium due to his drunken state. It is also reported that Sundowns players are not happy with the special treatment afforded to Billiat by Pitso and Motsepe while other players who make the simplest of mistakes are given punitive sanctions. Players cannot understand why Billiat is treated with kid gloves and harsh punishment given to others for petty mistakes. It has also emerged that the drunken behaviour and lawlessness of Khama Billiat didn't start at Sundowns but comes way back from his days at Ajax Cape Town. Sundowns are between a rock and a hard place right now. SL must STOP this selective reporting and strive for balanced reporting without fear, favour or prejudice. If it was a Pirates player this would have been reported long time ago!

@smo its pointless to try n put across an opinion for people discuss especially if those people only read to reply instead of reading to understand. From their answers you can tell that some just answer out of hate for the player but the honest truth is that he's got better leadership qualities than our current captain even though he's not a wow player. I hear people saying he's a cow but I only know that his weakness is passing. We can never see things the same way bro
