Stars Winger: We Are Ready For Bucs
Free State Stars Ready For Orlando Pirates
Orlando Pirates can expect a fight from their opponents this weekend if Sinethemba Jantjie’s comments about their game are anything to go by.
Jantjie and his teammates at Free State Stars are preparing to host Pirates in an Absa Premiership game on Saturday.
Speaking to the Siya crew about the game, the winger confirmed that Ea Lla Koto are highly motivated for coming up against Bucs.
“In games against a team like Orlando Pirates and all the other big teams, there is no need for motivation from coaches or everyone else for that matter. You go to the game already motivated. We are motivated. The mood in our camp is very good. We are ready to play against Bucs,” said Jantjie.
The Bethlehem outfit is coming from a morale-boosting win against SuperSport United in a game played on Wednesday.
“Our win against SuperSport United lifted us. We were coming back from a loss against Celtic and we needed the win. We are confident going to the Pirates game although we know that it won’t be an easy game,” added Jantjie.
Stars beat Pirates 3-2 in their last league game, which was played at James Motlatsi Stadium in April (2016/17 season).
Jantjie wants to see his team do well again against Pirates at home in Goble Park.
“We are playing at home and we have to use that to our advantage. We are ready for Pirates. We are gunning for a good result so that we can end the first round of the season on a high note and in a good position,” concluded the winger.
