Having lost 3-2 against Stars when they played an Absa Premiership game at the James Motlatsi Stadium on Saturday, the Buccaneers are getting an opportunity for revenge and to advance to the next round in the Nedbank Cup. 

Speaking to the media at a press conference at the Rand Stadium earlier today, Bucs’ head coach Kjell Jonevret, says the aim for his team is to rectify the past weekend’s results.

“The spirit in the dressing room is to go and rectify this past weekend’s result and I hope that we will win when we meet them again,” said the Swedish coach as quoted on Twitter by Bucs’ media officer Thandi Merafe.

Pirates are 11th on the PSL log with 23 points. The teams below Bucs on the standings are on 22, 20 and 18 points respectively and are in relegation zone.

Jonevret says it is early to start talking about relegation.

“We need to work hard and start getting positive results in order to move up the Log, but it’s too early to start talking relegation,” the coach has been quoted.

So long as there's still a top8 count us in. Relocation to Pirates means being outside the top 8 bracket.

Wena Shell Garage pick the right players that can win games & bench Manyisa & Mobara. Sarr is a cow but u need him until the end of the season as we dont have anyone who can play there.

Mntana bantu (Jonevret), ukubuwazi ngabawuthathanga lomsebenzi lowo. Mara siyathanda or asithandi we are in the relegation zone already. It is only a matter of time we are deep in the quagmire. All Thanx to Dr Know-It-All Khoza. He has made one wrong decision after another since refusing to renew Krol's contract...To Masway'Swayi: Siyeza bafethu kaABC Motsepe. #SoLongPsl #BucsIyavayaStraight Hahahaha

Its dark at bucs im so worried watch the big team like pirates where you expect players and management to deliver and their fail pirates has the most talented which is now waisted. Where is shitolo,qalinge,kutumela, skhakhakhane and their loan players which they need most backline its worse but the team has technical and analysis games i fear for the supporters because they love this team

as long as Khoza is the chairman, khohlwani, we have refrees to bribe, nyangas, to pay, a few rules could be broken, we could buy our spot back , if comitis can do it, or two teams could be added, we have so many options dunus should chill, this league belongs to khoza and motuang

Jomo once say the same thing until his team got relegated on the last game of the league. Mr Kjell Pirates is not wining any game hence that is the cause for concern. If Pirates can fail to collect maximum point in their next three league games it's a goodbye to them. Pirates Management are costing the team, and some players are contributing on that too. Decisions that have been made at the club this season are blunted and sabotage to the team. the chairman made too many wrong decisions with his management team.. Once a Pirates always a Pirates kunnzima kulukhuni kodwa ngeke saphela ithemba. Pirates need serious reshuffling.

It will be good for Bucs to end season at position 16,,, for I know PSL would never allow Rottos to be relegated by so doing they could force PSL to increase number of teams to 18#downsForceOfGravity

@Glomour Boy 666 I also dont want them to be relegated, but i wish they could play the playoffs. I f they failed the playoffs i would then be glad cz they talk too much. I like Pirates, only the its supporters are silly whether they old or young. They all mealie mealie of the same bag. #Azitshe
