Orlando Pirates development mentor, Augusto Palacios, is highly expectant of a good showing from his charges following weeks of intense preparation leading up to their quarter-final clash against the University of Pretoria when the Multichoice Diski Challenge tournament resumes on January 31.

Pirates have enjoyed an impressive run in the MDC, and are currently at the top of Group B with 15 points having scored 12 goals and conceding six.

Furthermore, what will be pleasing to the Peruvian-born mentor is the likes of Menzi Masuku and Sphesihle Sangweni contributing goals, with the former having already broken into the first team, with indications suggesting that Sangweni is not too far off from a promotion to the first team.

“Everything has been doing well. We started on the 4th of January and we’ve played four friendlies already, three more to go. The collaboration between the senior and junior players has been outstanding and I want to thank the first team for their co-operation on this,” said Palacios on the Bucs website.

“Two of our players, Siyanda Ngubo and Khumbulani Mkhize are in Russia with the National U20 and they are doing very well.”

“We are in the quarter-final now and we are taking it very seriously. It’s the knockout phase so we can’t go into it lightly. Tuks is a very good team so we have to be careful. The past is behind us and we can’t think too much about our previous results in this competition. We need to start again from now,” he concluded.
