Last season Loftman took over as head coach of the MDC side in November, doubling up with his role as part of first team performance analysis staff, which also boasts Darian Wilken and Kyle Solomon. That change saw then head coach, Mandla Qhogi, moved to an assistant role after starting the campaign as the main coach.

This season Qhogi is back in charge of the team as Loftman focuses on his first-team duties with the club aiming to end a five-year trophy drought since their 2014 Nedbank Cup success.

The re-appointed head coach, Qhogi saw his side get off to a winning start as Simiso Bophelo's solitary strike saw Bucs through to a 1-0 win against AmaZulu at King Zwelithini Stadium last Friday.
