Having moved back to the top of the table, following their 1-0 win over Bidvest Wits at the weekend, the Buccaneers could open a three-point gap with Downs at the top of the PSL standings, should they secure victory over Lidoda Duvha at Orlando Stadium on Wednesday evening. 

Bucs midfielder, Ben Motshwari, has described the upcoming match as a challenge, following the team’s struggle for their win against Wits on Saturday.

The 28-year-old has indicated that the team was not happy with their performance against Wits, but were pleased with the result. 

“The win over Wits is now behind us, we cannot dwell on that performance for too long because we have another challenge on our hands which is Black Leopards. We have to be at our best on Wednesday night because this is a team that cannot be underestimated,” Motshwari told Pirates’ official website.

The loss against Leopards in the Nedbank Cup Last 32 match in January is still in the minds of the Buccaneers, although Motshwari has dismissed any talk of revenge in discussing the upcoming match. 

“Coming into this game the focus is solely on the three points on offer and nothing else. We don’t have to come into this match and talk about revenge (for the Nedbank Cup loss) or things like that. This is a different competition with very different objectives and that’s the mentality we are carrying into this match,” added the central midfielder.
