Pirates' PRO, Mickey Modisane, confirmed to the Siya crew that everything is sorted out as far as the travel arrangements are concerned.

“We’ll depart for Brazzaville on Friday morning at around 10am, and return back to South Africa late on Sunday,” said Modisane.

“The preparations for the game against Leopards are going well and everyone is ready to try and get the three points we need from it. We’ll be missing some key players, but I’m confident that the guys that are going to Congo, will do the job for us,” added Modisane.

Pirates, who will be without Andile Jali, Thabo Matlaba and Happy Jele because of suspensions, will all but secure their qualification into the semi-finals of the Champions League with a win.
