Orlando Pirates PRO, Mickey Modisane, believes that last night’s 1-0 win over Maritzburg United has given the Buccaneers a psychological edge over the Team of Choice going into their Nedbank Cup semi-final clash.
Pirates beat Maritzburg 1-0 at Orlando Stadium last night, with Helder Pelembe scoring the winning goal for Bucs.
“Had they beaten us last night, they would have had the edge over us when we visit them in Durban for the Nedbank Cup clash, but as it is now, we hold that psychological advantage over them. They will be looking to avenge this defeat and that could work in our favour,” explained Modisane.
“It’s not going to be easy though to beat Maritzburg at their own backyard. Plus they have an astute coach in Steve Komphela who is a tactical master. You saw how he almost stole a point from us last night, so I’m anticipating a tough game against them,” added Modisane.
The dates and venues for the Nedbank Cup semi-finals are yet to be announced by the PSL.
