Bucs Aim To Bounce Back From Nedbank Defeat

Orlando Pirates want to bounce back after Nedbank Cup defeat to Cape Town City

By Soccer Laduma - Mar 16, 2018 02:40 PM

Orlando Pirates are hoping to get their league campaign back on track after they were dumped out of the Nedbank Cup in midweek by Cape Town City.

The Buccaneers are away to Golden Arrows on Saturday evening and will look to fully capitalise on putting pressure on Mamelodi Sundowns who don’t play until 4 April 2018 due to Champions League commitments.

Speaking to the Siya crew, Bucs Administrative Officer said the team has put Wednesday night behind them and are focused on the task of getting the full three points when they take on Abafana Besthende.

“Wednesday is behind. The challenge now lies ahead of us starting with the game against Arrows,” Mbele told the Siya Crew.

“We will have to put the defeat past us and focus on getting back to winning ways. Our players are professional enough to carry on and do the job at hand. We are also fully aware that we will play two leagues before Sundowns play their fixture, but we are not banking on that or even seeing that situation as an opportunity.

“What’s important for us is that we continue winning games. We need to control what we can control,” added Mbele.

Should the Soweto Giants win their two league games they could find themselves with 45 points having played two more games than Sundowns who will play Chippa United on the same day that the Buccaneers take on Bloemfontein Celtic.

@indidane_is very surprising that you call us building fc.When Pitso came to downs,the team had no clue how to play soccer.You fans nearly booted Pitso out wile on the building phase.It was not for Patrice who refused to kick Pitso,he should have long gone.We had a bad season last year,with coaches coming ang going;but when we do as all the teams do,an easy name,building fc just cones.Chiefs did the same,but no names there.Who can be in a beautiful house without building it?I have known downs fans for many years,they were never noise,i smell a rat these should be swalows fans trying to find a hing placa.#UP THE NUCS.

The league is 70 miles away from us mr Mbele,to win it we have to be good runers.Only unless if downs can be humerd by injerys,which i dont wish any of their players to.Let us adjust ourselves into nuilding the team for next season.Being out of Netbank cup is not an issue,but a wakeup call for the next games.Good luky boys#UP THE BUCS.
