Rodgers: We’ll Fight

Ajax Cape Town forward, Eleazar Rodgers, tells the Siya crew that facing Orlando Pirates at home tonight will be a tough one, but they can stun the Buccaneers.

Following their 3-2 loss to Mamelodi Sundowns last Saturday night, the former Santos striker revealed that they have shifted their focus to tonight’s clash. Pirates are also fresh from a 1-0 defeat at the hands of PSL rookies, Polokwane City, and Rodgers said the game has all the ingredients of a thriller.

“Yeah we haven’t prepared like we have wanted but we plan ahead for different games you know. We are ready for tonight’s game. We know it’s not going to be an easy one but we have to fight and rise to the occasion. We have recovered from our weekend loss to Sundowns and have shifted our focus to Pirates. Pirates is a tough team you know because they’re always under pressure to win everything that comes their way and have to catch up with the league games, so it’s really tough for them but we respect them. 

“For us it’s a home game and the only thing that we must go for is the three points, and this is the time to fight and ensure the points remain at home. Obviously we have a plan for them but we believe the right thing is to do the talk on the field of play. We can stun them. The fans have been waiting for this one and we will not disappoint them. We aim to give Pirates a tough time and we can win the game and get the three points on offer,” added the Kuils River-born forward.
