Andries Sebola believes that Orlando Pirates will be able to finish in the top three and can play in Africa again next season.
Based on Pirates current form and that of their closest rivals, the former striker says that the timing of their resurgence has made a return to continental competition a likely scenario.
“They picked up at the right time when some of the teams they are competing with are dropping points,” he told the Siya crew. “I know after losing to Wits things were disturbed but with the remaining games they can still do it.”
Sebola has predicted a third place finish and says that Pirates participation in Africa will not only benefit Eric Tinkler’s side, but the country as a whole.
“They can finish third and qualify for the Confederation Cup next year which will be good for the team and the country," he observed.
With seven games remaining this season, Orlando Pirates are 11 points adrift of third-placed Platinum Stars in seventh place on the PSL log.
