Pirates Redemption Looms – 4 Danger Men Spotted

Orlando Pirates coach Micho Sredojevic will come out of the frying pan and straight into the fire tomorrow evening when the Buccaneers host stubborn Highlands Park in the quarterfinals of the MTN8 at Orlando Stadium.

And the Serbian-born mentor has singled out four players from the opposition he believes will pose a threat as Pirates look to bounce back from two consecutive defeats.

Sredojevic watched on as his side were narrowly beaten by Green Eagles in Zambia last week during the first leg of their CAF Champions League preliminary round fixture, in Lusaka which was followed by a 3-0 drubbing by SuperSport United in the Absa Premiership on Wednesday night in Mbombela.

In attempting to mastermind a redemption of some sort, the coach said they would have to shut down the supply to strikers Rodney Ramagalela, Peter Shalulile, winger Lindokuhle Mbatha as well as midfielder Mothibi Mvala, who was Highland’s top goal scorer last season.

“We have to look at how to tighten at the back. We know that these four players – Ramagalela, Shalulile, Mbatha and Mvala can hurt us,” Sredojevic told the media.

“They are also strong on set pieces. We also need to find a way to outplay them in midfield. So instead of licking our wounds from last week, those are the topics we are thinking about.”
