It is a good time to be a Buccaneer! Not only has the team managed to stretch their incredible unbeaten run to 11 games, but they have also proven that they are not dependent just a handful of players.
Teams can be packed with quality, but there will always be one or two players that they will look to week in and week out to get them out of tricky situations. At Parktown that is Lehlohonolo Majoro and Kermit Erasmus.
Together, the striking duo has managed to find the back of the net a total of 16 times, converting eight goals each to sit near the top of goal scoring charts.
Their form has been largely instrumental to the club’s unbeaten run of matches, and many were claiming that Pirates were dependent on the Majoro/Erasmus partnership. However, last night proved different…
Both Mpho Makola and Sifiso Myeni found the back of the net in the 2-0 win over Chippa United. To see other players score for Pirates is a huge relief, especially with Erasmus missing chances and Majoro not taking part in the match due to suspension.
This will certainly serve as a confidence booster for Saturday’s CAF Confederations Cup match. Ghosts, what do you make of this?
