Orlando Pirates Communications Manager, Mickey Modisane, is in high spirits ahead of his club’s Absa PSL encounter with KZN-based outfit, Maritzburg United, tonight at the Orlando Stadium.
In an exclusive interview with Soccer Laduma, Modisane declared that the team is ready and well prepared to face the team the Team of Choice, with the Buccaneers having only one thing in mind, to win the match and collect maximum points.
“We want to consolidate our position in the top 8 of the table. We want to finish this season in the top four and so tonight we are going for all three points. We know Maritzburg are not a small team so it’s going to be a tough encounter, but for us it’s about maximum points, " Modisane told the SL crew.
“It’s an open secret that Daine Klate will be out serving a suspension, but we have quality in players like Tlou Segolela and Joseph Molangoane who can fill the gap” added the Pirates spokesperson.
Modisane concluded by stating that the Pirates players are still highly motivated to compete and finish in the highest possible position in the league and that the crucial understanding between Vladimir Vermezović and the players is developing strongly.
Match will get underway at 19:30
