Pirates will host Kaizer Chiefs an Absa Premiership match at the FNB Stadium on Saturday. Jackson Mabokgwane, who was in goals for Bucs in their 4-2 win over Chippa United this past weekend, is looking forward to playing against Chiefs.

Having closed the gap between themselves and Mamelodi Sundowns to only four points, The Buccaneers will aim to keep piling the pressure on the log leaders in the remaining matches of the season. 

Mabokgwane says the team will play against Chiefs with the fans in mind.

“If I play, it will be my first derby so I’ll be looking forward to it. I’m excited because the magnitude of the game is huge. Especially for the fans because they get the bragging rights if we win. It’s a big game for us all,” said Mabokgwane as confirmed on Bucs’ official Twitter account.

After the Chiefs game, Bucs will have a trip to KwaMashu’s Princess Magogo Stadium for their next league assignment against Golden Arrows on March 17.

He never played well against chips since from Golden Arrows. I remember he made a blunder for siphiwe tshabalala's cross the ball end up finding the back of the net. I mean the guy he's full of conceding stupid goals, which is not good for us to be feed buy such performance especially this time around. My vote for derby goes to Mpontshane.

i will never understand why people hate mpontshane, it's probably because he doesn't have those looks you would like to use as the face of your brand, mpontshane is not perfect but he is better than mabokwane who is so clumsy, at their age you would expect them to have some maturity

Pirates need to get two central defenders. I can tell you if we get Tulani from Wits will be the best in South Africa

Pirates must sign one good keeper and let the rest leave for free. I think Pule at Amazulu is a good keeper than our big useless keepers. Just keep Mabokgwane is the only better keeper.

This Sandiland must get his clearance and take road. If the coach wanted to leave the team style then he can play him. Who exactly is scouting goal keepers at Pirates. That person must loose his position for signing Sandiland

This is the department where Pirates is struggling. Mpontshane is better than this GK. Look @ the goals he conceded against Chippa United and goals which were scored by Ajax. Lastly when is PSL awarding our 3 points from Ajax for fielding ineligible Ndoro? 7 days for this matter is over now as they promised.
