Gabuza: We’re In For A Cracker

Orlando Pirates striker, Thamsanqa Gabuza, is hoping that the Soweto Derby against Kaizer Chiefs will be an open game.

The Buccaneers have been struggling in the league of late and currently sit in 13th position on the log with five points from seven games.

However, in the CAF Confederation Cup it has been a different story with Bucs dispatching of Al Ahly both at home and away to reach the finals of the competition.

Gabuza has indicated that Pirates tend to struggle when teams set up to defend against them and is hoping that the Soweto Derby on Saturday will be an open affair.

“If the team wins I am happy, whether I scored or don’t. I have to put the team first. The only thing I’m asking for is an open game,” Gabuza told Soccer Laduma.

“I’m saying this because in most of the games we play locally, our opposition is tense and they don’t want to show up.

“When they have the ball, they are defensive. When we have the ball, they are still defensive.

“As long as this game is going to be open like those we play in the CAF Confederation Cup, we’re in for a cracker.”
