Will We See More Of The Major-Kermit Partnership?

When Vladimir Vermezovic was in charge of Orlando Pirates at the start of the campaign, fans questioned his stance of playing one striker upfront, but with Eric Tinkler in charge, will there be a change?

Since VV’s resignation early in November, the Buccaneers has undergone a slight shuffle of formation, with Tinkler giving the fans what they wanted.

In the majority of the five games in charge, at some point or another, Tinkler opted to field a two-prong attack, which featured Lehlohonolo Majoro and Kermit Erasmus alongside each other.

Together, there was more fluidity and an attacking potency to the Bucs line-up, and the change in formation has often yielded some good results.

Majoro is currently the Bucs’ leading goalscorer with six league goals, after having made just four starts in 15 league appearances, while his strike partner, Erasmus, has notched up five goals.

On top of those statistics, the pair have yielded four goals in their last four games working alongside each other, providing consistency and form to the fluctuating club.

But the question remains whether or not Tinkler will continue to show trust in the Major-Kermit attack when the league resumes against AmaZulu on Wednesday?

Ghosts, would you like to see more of this combo?
