Pirates Punisher Puts Them To The Sword… Again

Orlando Pirates must be sick of coming up against Bradley Grobler, with the SuperSport United hitman orchestrating another win over the Buccaneers on Wednesday night…
 
Check out Grobler in action in the gallery above!
 
The forward has now scored eight goals and got four assists in his 16 games against Orlando Pirates over the years, directly contributing to almost a goal per game against the Buccaneers as he continues to be a thorn in their side.
 
 
Grobler, 31, also got an assist on top of his brace at Mbombela Stadium to help Matsatsantsa record their first victory of 2019/20, ending Pirates’ unbeaten streak in the league that ran back to February when they were last beaten – by SuperSport.
 
While his second goal was a thunderous half volley, his opener was down to him showing some impressive anticipation to sneak the ball past Wayne Sandilands after getting onto the end of a Thabiso Monyane header.
 
 
Speaking to SuperSport after the game, Grobler gave some insight into what he’s been working on, saying, “In the league you get chances like that, it’s something I’ve worked on lately; looking for those little opportunities.
 
“I haven’t scored as many goals as I wanted to and I needed to capitalise on moments like that. It’s just a mental thing, being sharp and working hard at training. I think it paid off tonight.”
 
 
Meanwhile, his coach heaped praise on him following his display in Nelspruit, saying, “He deserves that. He’s been working very hard. Against [Mamelodi] Sundowns he was just unlucky, he could have scored. I’m very happy for him he’s been working very hard at training and even in our matches.
 
Next up for SuperSport is a clash with Bidvest Wits in the MTN8 this weekend as the two teams look to book their place in the semifinals of the competition.
