Orlando Pirates have issued a warning ahead of this afternoon’s much anticipated match against Mamelodi Sundowns.
With their 4-1 loss against Downs in the Nedbank Cup still fresh in the minds, the Buccaneers have warned that the league clash in Orlando will be totally different and that they will be going all out to get the three points.
Meanwhile, Sundowns need to get back to winning after they were pushed to second place on the log by AmaZulu, following the Durban-based team’s 1-0 win over Golden Arrows on Saturday.
“The match is at Orlando Stadium although the supporters are not there, we know that they are behind us 100%. They are spiritually cheering us on in the match and we can feel the support. We are at Orlando Stadium and that should be our advantage going into the game,” said Pirates assistant coach Fadlu Davids, speaking through the club’s media channels.
“Cup game is going all out for the win, you are a goal behind, and you push numbers forward. of course, you can get caught on the counter. The league game is a completely different game. We’re confident in our approach, it’s three points to play for and that’s what we are going for,” the coach added.
