Gcaba Coming Good For Pirates

Orlando Pirates defender Ayanda Gcaba has stepped up as one of Bucs’ most reliable players in the last four matches, and seems likely to remain at centre-back alongside Rooi Mahamutsa.

Gcaba hasn’t been a regular starter for Bucs since his arrival from Free State Stars in 2012, after making over 60 appearances for Ea Lla Koto between 2008 and 2012.

The 27-year-old defender has patiently been waiting for his chance to become a vital part of Bucs’ starting XI following some heavy criticism from the Bucs faithful.

After the recent Soweto Derby, which ended in a 1-1 draw with possession split at 50/50, Gcaba ended the match as Bucs’ top defender by gaining possession 18 times for his team and playing 45 passes out of defence.

Mahamutsa and Gcaba have formed a formidable partnership in the last three matches, which includes the CAF Champions League semi-final second leg match against Esperance, the Telkom Knockout quarter-final win over Golden Arrows as well as the Soweto Derby draw.
