The Buccaneers will be at the King Zwelithini Stadium for their Absa Premiership match against Usuthu on Sunday afternoon.

The Soweto giants will have to do better than their 1-1 first round draw with the KwaZulu-Natal outfit if they aim to keep any title hopes alive for this season.        

Going into the match, Bucs’ technical team will be aware that their away form needs to improve, as it has let them down in some of the matches this season.
