Orlando Pirates

Red Card Concern For City Coach V Pirates

Cape Town City head coach, Jan Olde Riekerink, has hinted at how his team is plans to approach Orlando Pirates in their clash this weekend. 

The Citizens have confirmed that their home match against the Buccaneers will not be at Cape Town Stadium as initially scheduled, but has been moved to the Danie Craven Stadium in Stellenbosch, due to the unavailability of the Cape Town Stadium.

Riekerink, who has already lost to Bucs this season in the MTN8 in October, says he is hoping to finish the match on Saturday with all his 11 players on the field unlike in the previous two matches. 

During the 1-0 loss in the MTN8 at Orlando Stadium, City finished the match with 10 players after a red card to Fagrie Lakay, while in an earlier match in the league in August, Mpho Makola was sent off against his old club.

“So, now we have Pirates, first of all I hope we will finish this game with 11 against 11 because I only played them with 10, one win and one loss. With the loss we were the better team and in the first one we got our win from our mentality. The second one of course we lost but I think we played the first half of the match better,” said Riekerink, speaking to the media.

“But it will be the game for us that will be important… do we play with White or do we play with Black in the chess way? Do we have the initiative, or we say we have to wait for Pirates? But my players will not want to play with Black, so we will take the initiative in this game. We will play to our identity, we want to win this game,” the coach added.
