Orlando Pirates PRO, Mickey Modisane, has welcomed the PSL draw that saw the Buccaneers open their 2014/15 season with a home clash against Soweto rivals Moroka Swallows.
The draw for the 2014/15 league campaign was conducted at the PSL offices in Parktown earlier today.
“The good thing is that we’re playing at home, so we’ll need to open our league campaign with a win. It’s not going to be easy to beat Swallows because as you know this is a Soweto derby, but like I said, a win would be a good way to launch our PSL title challenge,” Modisane told the Siya crew.
After playing Swallows, Pirates will then play Bloemfontein Celtic and AmaZulu. Both games will be away matches.
“That’s why I say that it’s important to win our first game against Swallows, so that we could go into these two games with a high confidence,” added Modisane.
The opening round of the 2014/15 PSL will take place on the 8-10 August.
