Dauda To Make His Pirates Debut?

Orlando Pirates coach, Roger De Sa, has given his biggest indication that he might be ready to hand Ghana goalkeeper, Fatau Dauda, game time at Bucs.

Speaking after Pirates’ three friendlies against AC Leopards, Polokwane City and United FC on Tuesday, De Sa said it was important to get Dauda as ready as possible for the World Cup.

"Dauda got a full game today. It was very important that we get him as ready as possible because he has a big year ahead with the World Cup," De Sa told the official Pirates twitter account.

Dauda kept a clean sheet in Bucs’ first game against AC Leopards, which Pirates won 1-0.

After the game, the Ghanaian said he was happy to have played 90 minutes of football for Pirates.

"I'm happy I played today against a strong team. They gave us problems but in the end we did the job," said Dauda.

"I managed to make only a few saves because our defence was tight. They played very well.

"I took a knock when the ball hit me in the head from close range. That man had a serious shot. But I'm cool now. No harm done,” concluded Dauda.

Pirates will play SuperSport United in an Absa Premiership match at Orlando Stadium on Saturday.
