Cheeseboy On Bucs V Downs Clash: ‘All-Out Attack’

Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns will in all likelihood approach their match with an all-out attack system, according to Lebohang Mokoena. 

Three points will be at stake as two powerhouses of South African football will face off in their second round Absa Premiership match on Monday.

Cheeseboy, as Mokoena is known in football circles, believes that both coaches from his former teams are likely to go for the all-out attack at the Orlando Stadium.

“While much has changed at both sides since my playing days, from what I can see I think it’s going to be a highly tactical game. I think Sundowns would not want to give it away because they might think they have an edge coming in to this game on top, while Pirates could be more offensive since nothing but a win will do for them. I think it will be an all-out attack,” Mokwena told Pirates’ official website. 

At Loftus Versfeld Stadium, during their first round match in November, Downs and Bucs drew 0-0. 

“It’s going to come down to the finer details, the margins… whoever takes their chances will win. There won’t be any busses parked at Orlando and while the approaches will be different, they will both be positive with both sides looking to grab the three points and clear themselves from anybody else who is chasing the title. Both sets of players know what is at stake and they will have to deliver on the day,” added Mokoena.

“This fixture has been a battle since the days of William Okpara vs Daniel Mudau, but I don’t know with this generation if we have similar battles where you know that maybe a certain defender will be taking on a certain striker. Those are the things we used to watch back then. I remember my battle with Vuyo Mere when I was at Pirates then when I moved to Sundowns, the battle was between myself and Happy Jele,” said Mokoena.
