Useful facts: The Buccaneers have had a full pre-season under head coach Milutin Sredojevic and assistant Rhulani Mokwena where the technical team look to improve on last season’s second spot finish. Apart from the pre-season preparations, the club also added in some much-needed quality to reinforce all the departments. On the other hand, Highlands Park come into the league having taken the NFD by storm, winning the title with five league games in hand. They will be hoping to stamp their authority against the Sea Robbers.
