Tonight, the Bucs’ mentor will lead his charges against Chippa United at Orlando Stadium in a league encounter, and will aim at overturning the 1-0 loss inflicted by the Chilli Boys in the first half of the current campaign.

“We knew going into the derby against Chiefs that a draw would be a possible result however that will not hinder our objective of wanting to finish at the highest possible position,” Tinkler told the crew.

“Starting with the match against Chippa there are eight league games to play which is 24 points, that’s a lot of points and anything can happen in that time.”

“We still have our sights set on competing in Africa and repeat the work we did back in 2013. I know it would be a personal achievement for the players and myself included, but at the same time we can only get there by winning games,” concluded the former Bafana Bafana international.

Under Tinkler the Buccaneers have extended their unbeaten run to six games and will look to make it seven with tonight’s encounter. Bucs will be without striker, Lehlohonolo Majoro as he will be serving his second suspension of the season
