De Sa: No Walk In The Park

Orlando Pirates will resume the defence of their PSL title on Wednesday, when they host SuperSport United at the Orlando Stadium.

Currently second on the Absa Premiership table, one point adrift log leaders Kaizer Chiefs,  Bucs will be looking to continue their pressure at the top of the table. The two sides played to a 0-0 draw in the first round of the season, although coach Roger de Sa was not on the bench at the time.

 

De Sa admits that the fixture will be difficult, although he is expecting a different game to that of the first round tie.

 

“It's true the game will be difficult but it will be different compared to the first round. I know United have a history against Pirates, but you have to know that I have an almost full squad with only two injuries, to Robyn Johannes and Rooi Mahamutsa. 

 

“So for the first time we will have a full squad and that will be good for the team. But it won't be a walk in the park, I can tell you that," the former Wits coach said.
