Pirates Poised For One Of Their Best Scoring Seasons

At the start of the campaign, many were criticising the performances of Kermit Erasmus and Lehlohonolo Majoro, but after an upswing in form, the team is poised for one of its best goal scoring seasons.

Currently, the Sea Robbers have found the back of the net a total of 32 times across 22 fixtures, and Majoro and Kermit have contributed to 16 of those strikes. 

That is a solid turnover for the striking duo, who have notched up half the number of the team’s goals, as Pirates sit on top of the goal scoring charts this season.

Pirates are knocking on the door of the 2010/11 campaign, where they scored a total of 41 goals – the most in Pirates’ last six seasons.

Back in 2009/10 they netted only 26 goals, while their second treble triumph in 2011/12 saw the Bucs score a total of 40 goals. The year after (2012/13) saw Bucs hit the net 39 times. 

With eight games remaining, Eric Tinkler will need to see his charges score in every game from now until the end of the season, and ensure that two games end with two or more goals to guarantee that the record of 2010/11 is beaten.

It certainly seems possible for Pirates, as their goalless draw to Chiefs was the first game they had failed to score in since the 0-0 draw to Tuks in November 2014.

Ghosts, do you think the team can break the 41 goal mark?
