Orlando Pirates will be eyeing their first win since September, as they get ready for their game against Golden Arrows.
The Buccaneers will host Abafana Bes’thende in an Absa Premiership game at Orlando Stadium tonight and coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic’s team last won a league game in their victory against Cape Town City in September. The Soweto giants have drawn three and lost two of their last five games in the league.
Bucs’ form from last five league games:
Bidvest Wits (A) Lost
Polokwane City (A) Draw
Platinum Stars (H) Draw
Kaizer Chiefs (A) Draw
Mamelodi Sundowns (H) Lost
“Head coach Micho Sredojevic and his charges face a big task ahead in the form of Golden Arrows who they face at the Orlando Stadium tonight. The Buccaneers are winless in five matches of the Absa Premiership, having last recorded a win in September against Cape Town City. Current form sees the hosts coming into this encounter with three draws and two defeats in their last five league matches. Similarly, the second-placed Arrows are also going through a slight dip in form with their last win also coming in September against Platinum Stars,” Bucs confirmed on the club’s official website.
Two other wins for Pirates this season were against Chippa United and Ajax Cape Town in the first and third game of the season respectively.
The game between Pirates and Arrows is scheduled to start at 19h30.
