Nyatama: Form Wins Games
Musa Nyatama says form will help Orlando Pirates challenge for the league
Orlando Pirates midfielder Musa Nyatama has told the Siya crew that form will be key if the Buccaneers are to challenge for league honours.
Nyatama has been one of Pirates most outstanding players in the current campaign and has weighed in with two league goals and over five assists. The 30-year was also instrumental in guiding the Buccaneers to a 3-1 victory over Kaizer Chiefs in the Soweto Giants helping his side narrow the gap between themselves and Mamelodi Sundowns by just four points.
“There are just nine games left in the league. This is when you rely on form to get you through. Form wins games,” said the midfielder.
“Thankfully for us, we have players who have peaked at the right time and are playing well. They are enjoying good form and this is good for the team. Players like Luvuyo Memela, Bernard Morrison and Tembinkosi Lorch are enjoying good form and this is filtering through the team.
“Our next game is in the Nedbank Cup against Cape Town City and even there we need to play well and show the same form we’ve been showing in the league. At this stage, all teams are working hard and trying their best to finish in the best possible position. But the reality is that it’s the teams that enjoy the best form which will win games and get the points.
“We are aware of this and that’s why the key players in our team will have to step up and help the club win league honours,” concluded the Bucs number 14.
Nyatama and his teammates travel to Cape Town to take on the Citizens on 14 March 2018 in the Nedbank Cup. That match will start at 19:30.
