The Buccaneers will host Amakhosi in their second Absa Premiership derby of the season, on Saturday afternoon.

A win for Bucs against Chiefs would take the team closer Mamelodi Sundowns at the top of the PSL log.

Bucs’ assistant coach Rhulani Mokwena has fond memories of watching games between Pirates and Chiefs while growing up.

“The derby holds special memories especially growing up close to Orlando Stadium. There’s always an energy about this game so being part of it even closer is a massive privilege,” said Mokwena as confirmed on Bucs’ official Twitter account.

 

Earlier today (Monday), Mokwena addressed the media on the upcoming Soweto derby which takes place this Saturday, 03 March.

I swear that should Khomphela start with Castro and Moon we will not win the match. Castro has to be pair with Parker. Let Parker do the donkey work and allow Castro to hang in and around the box. Maluleka must be relegated to the bench. Shabba must start the match. In short the team should be- Khune in goals. Ngezana, Cardoso and Hadebe as back three. Shabba and Mphahlele as attacking wingers. Katsande is holding midfielder. Meyiwa and Ntshangase in the middle. Then Parker and Castro upfront. Otherwise we going to allow rats to pin us back and if that happens, we are dead.

@Jsy no 10 I know what you mean my fellow Ghost, Ajax fielded an illegimate player and had an advantage over us by doing that, so Pirates won that game and have not lost this year, zebras and Sundonkeys fans must get this in their skulls that Pirates will be awarded Ajax 3 points, Sundonkeys are only 1 point ahead of us

@ms@rich. I've noticed that too, even Thomas Mlambo on Soccerzone he's always trying hard to put Bucs down.

Supersport must examine their panelist or Soccer analyst..It looks like they recruit ...More Kaizer Chiefs Players who some of them take sides..Especially siyabonga Nkosi He's Always on chiefs sides..When chiefs loose he looks dissapointed ...And when Mighty Buccaneers or Downs loose..He looks like he enjoyed the down fall of the two teams and lumber sting them..It's a pity in our Foot ball Circle..So please ssport overllook at something like these
