Pirates To Have New Leader For Chiefs Clash?    

Orlando Pirates will have a different leader on the field against Kaizer Chiefs in this weekend’s Soweto Derby, with indications that a fellow defender and the usual partner of Happy Jele in central defence could get the nod for the role. 

Pirates will be without Jele, who has been a key defender and captain of the side, against Amakhosi on Saturday.

For the first time this season, against Stellenbosch FC in Cape Town, the Buccaneers started the game with a new captain in Ntsikelelo Nyauza. 

However, the Soweto giants lost the match 1-0, before bouncing back to win 1-0 against Highlands Park in the next match.

Indications are that Nyauza could get the nod to lead Bucs for a second time in what should be a big moment on a big occasion such as the Soweto Derby, after struggling for game-time at the start of the season.

Moreover, Nyauza took over the armband from Jele when he was red-carded against Maritzburg United in Tuesday night’s 0-0 draw.   

Nyauza, 29, failed to feature for Pirates in the first three matches of the season in the league, but has been a regular in the starting line-up under coach Rulani Mokwena.
