Davids: The Team That Got To 20 Minutes From Winning The League

Despite taking a 3-0 advantage into this afternoon’s match, Orlando Pirates’ Fadlu Davids has deflected the attention to arch-rivals Kaizer Chiefs who will be hosting them at FNB Stadium for the MTN8 second leg match.

Goals from Zakhele Lepasa, Vincent Pule and Thembinkosi Lorch at the Orlando Stadium last Saturday handed the Buccaneers although Davids is saying that the 3-0 win is not an advantage for Bucs.

“It’s not an advantage, we know that this is the team that got to 20 minutes from winning the league. This is exactly the same team, nothing has changed. The quality of the players has not changed overnight, it’s exactly the same team,” said Davids, speaking to the media during the week.

“They can score three, they can score four, they can score five but so can we. We’re not going to go into the game defending, we are going to approach the game as a normal match knowing that our eyes are on the final. But we have to do the job in the next match to be able to reach that final,” he added.
