Williams: Erasmus Is The One For Me

Former Bafana Bafana and Kaizer Chiefs striker, Mark Williams, thinks Kermit Erasmus will hold the key for Orlando Pirates in the Soweto Derby.

The Buccaneers will be looking to kick-start their league campaign when they face off against the Amakhosi in this weekend’s Soweto Derby.

Pirates have only been able to score in two of their seven league games so far this season and Williams thinks that Erasmus will hold the key to unlocking the Chiefs defence on Saturday.

The striker has only managed to score one goal in Bucs’ league campaign, which came in their 4-1 win over Chippa United.

The 25-year-old has however been in fine form in Pirates’ CAF Confederation Cup games and Williams thinks the forward will need to step up to the plate against Chiefs.

“When you come to the game, you know it’s going to be a full house and you must just visualise it,” Williams told Soccer Laduma.

“You must not come to the game and be like, ‘Today we play Pirates!’ No! You must be prepared to say, ‘Okay, I’m the striker and I know I’m playing against Mathoho. He is strong there, so I’m going to try and exploit his weaknesses.’

“Erasmus is the right one for me and I haven’t seen the other strikers coming to the party in big games.

“It should be a good game, though, because Pirates want to make sure they win this game as they need the points. It’s the same for Chiefs.”
