It’s the opening match and they say first impressions last. The Buccaneers must make a statement with their first game of the Absa Premiership.

August 14: SuperSport United (A)

Matsatsantsa will most likely be among the title contenders depending on how solid their transfer window is – and they always have it in them to upset the applecart.

September 21: Bidvest Wits (A)
