Orlando Pirates midfielder, Thandani Ntshumayelo, says Bucs will go into tonight’s match against Maritzburg United with confidence following their win over Mamelodi Sundowns last Saturday.
“We did well by beating Sundowns before this match because now, we have a slight momentum which we have to maintain until the end of the season,” Ntshumayelo told the official Pirates website.
“We need to win something for our fans, so our next match is always going to be very important for us to win. We do not have too many games left to salvage our season, so winning all our matches is vital now.
“Maritzburg is a tough team. We went to them in the first round and we had to fight hard to get a result. Although we beat them in their turf, this match will be different. They have a good coach and their players are motivated coming to us,” added Ntshumayelo.
Bucs will take on Maritzburg at Orlando Stadium tonight.
