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.

Stars must watch out because pirates is under pressure too much they need more goals to make sure that they stay in good position on the log but its up to Gabuza whether he want pirates to win today or not

Love is blind but that wont work for me..if Pirates have enough quality we should'nt hv even think or stress about de outcome against small team like free state hence ytendencies of signing average plyers it's destroying our brand bit by bit,khoza need to wakeup and target only quality plyers when T.window opens..if we had enough quality most of goal opportunities dat were wasted should hv been executed,my fate ds season conceded dat there'll be nothing positive, citing these current average crop will offer nothing than pains,I just hope it wont be worse

I would like to see pirates take 3 points to this best coach nothing else because Sundowns is going with the league if pirates fail to win with more goals that's would be a big problem
