AmaZayoni will host the Buccaneers in what is expected to be a thrilling match at Mbombela Stadium tonight.

“Pirates are favourites going into this game. They got the likes of Andile Jali, Tlou Segolela and the inform goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa, who is very difficult to beat these days,” Barker told the Siya crew.

“We respect what Pirates have done in Africa as the club during the last couple of months. They are the in-form team at the moment, so we we’re expecting a very tough match against them tonight.

“Our biggest concern going into this game is whether or not our players will play to the best of their capabilities in this match,” added Barker.

Meanwhile, Aces midfielder Clifford Ngobeni says he has nothing to prove against his former team, Pirates.

“I have no point to prove tonight, life goes on. Football is a team sport. I’ll continue playing under the team’s tactics and structure. AmaZayoni,” wrote Ngobeni on his Twitter account.
