Orlando Pirates coach, Eric Tinkler, has indicated that he is completely focused on his side’s upcoming clash with Bidvest Wits.
The Buccaneers will be looking to get their league campaign back on track when they welcome the Clever Boys to Orlando Stadium this evening, in what promises to be a tricky encounter.
Pirates currently languish in 11th position on the PSL table with five points from their five games and will be looking to climb up the log with a win. Wits on the other hand will be looking to kick on from their relatively solid start in which they have picked up 13 points from six games, leaving them fourth on the log.
Tinkler is adamant his focus is firmly on tonight’s game and is not prepared to let Bucs’ upcoming TKO quarterfinal clash against Maritzburg United on Saturday distract him.
“Right now I am still focusing on Bidvest Wits. I will only start thinking about the Maritzburg United and the Telkom Knockout after we play Wits,” Tinkler told Soccer Laduma.
“I have not given that game a thought yet; my mind is not there yet. I have another very important game first. I am focusing on the Wits game right now.”
What do you expect from tonight’s game? Do you think Bucs have what it takes to topple Wits or will the Clever Boys be too strong?
