Why Next Match Could Be Tougher For Pirates…  

Orlando Pirates might have to expect a tougher match against Stellenbosch FC this coming weekend, compared to the team they played against in cup competition at home in Orlando on Saturday. 

Apart from having to travel to the Mother City for the upcoming league clash, the Buccaneers can expect an overhaul of changes from their opponents, who tweaked their team in the previous match, showing that their priority in first season in Absa Premiership is to stay up.

From the Cape side’s 2-0 win over Polokwane City prior to the Pirates match, several changes were made to the playing personnel by coach Steve Barker as some of the team’s regulars and experienced players were on the bench, while others were rested.

Lee Langeveldt was in goals for his first appearance of the season replacing Dutch goalkeeper Boy de Jong, while experienced defenders and ex-Pirates players Robyn Johannes and Marc van Heerden started on the bench, among other notable changes.

The win against Rise and Shine was Stellenbosch’s first of the campaign. Barker and his team know that getting three points against the Buccaneers could take them to a better position on the log than their current 14th place.
