Pirates Point Out At Threatening Factors About Their Opponents

Orlando Pirates are wary of the improved form of their opponents in their upcoming fixture as Josef Zinnbauer and his side are aiming to make it two wins in a row, after some disappointing results in some of the recent matches.

Pirates will be at the Orlando Stadium later today to host TS Galaxy in a DStv Premiership match, following their slender 1-0 win on the weekend over Maritzburg United.

With Galaxy coming from a convincing 3-0 victory in their previous match against Maritzburg away, Pirates are cautious about the threat of the Mpumalanga outfit under their new coach Owen da Gama to their chances of moving further up on the standings. 

“The focus immediately after the game in Maritzburg is focused to TS Galaxy. We’re putting all our focus into it and analysing them. They are a really strong squad, strong team, a new team in the league but we know that they are from the origination of Highlands Park,” Pirates assistant coach Fadlu Davids said, speaking through the club’s official social media channels.

“They are even more powerful now that they got the previous coach, the Highlands Park coach, hence we’ve seen the 3-0 result that they had in Maritzburg. (They) were really structured in how they defend and how they do things. We really have to be up for it at Orlando Stadium. We know it’s going to be a fight at Orlando Stadium to get the result,” he said.
