Tinkler Relishing Bucs Meeting With Wits
Orlando Pirates head coach Eric Tinkler is relishing the prospect of coming up against his former employers when the Buccaneers host Bidvest Wits tonight.
Tinkler steered his troops into the Telkom Knockout quarterfinals after a hard fought 2-1 win against a spirited University of Pretoria side last week.
The former Bafana Bafana hard man labelled this tie a ‘big one’ and equally emphasised the importance of his charges coming away with all the three points against The Students.
"It's a big one against Wits. It comes immediately after our win over Tuks and people will expect another good result from the team. That kind of puts pressure on us but it also gives us the chance to continue fighting and winning.
“We need to get a positive result from it. We know that Wits are not an easy team to play against at any given time but we have to make sure we win tonight, " the former Wits assistant coach concluded.
The tie will start at 19:30.
