Three points are at stake when Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates battle it out in their league match at FNB Stadium on Saturday. While he didn’t score in Bucs’ most recent game which was against Platinum Stars on Wednesday, Gabuza remains a key player for Milutin Sredojevic’s team.

The striker is the team’s leading goalscorer with the three strikes netted thus far this season. The 30-year-old is expected to lead the front line for Bucs against the resurgent Amakhosi side on Saturday.

Former Chiefs and Pirates midfielder, Stanton Fredericks, believes that Gabuza can be influential for Bucs against Amakhosi.

“Yes, definitely. It goes without saying that when a coach shows confidence in a player, the heights a player can reach are limitless. You look at Gabuza. The coach trusts him and he has a few goals under his belt already this season. He is going to be effective. If Gabuza is going to throw his weight around in the right areas and not go wide and restrict his movements within the box, he is going to determine the outcome of the derby. He will cause problems for the Kaizer Chiefs defence,” said Fredericks.
