Bucs Defender Explains Their Plan For Chiefs
Pirates Hint At Their Plan For Chiefs Game
An experienced Orlando Pirates defender has explained how his team is planning to approach the match against Kaizer Chiefs.
Bucs will be eyeing to get all three points against Chiefs, as they aim to close the gap with Mamelodi Sundowns at the top of the table.
However, Amakhosi also know that a win for them will take them closer to their dream of winning a league title under Steve Komphela.
Speaking at the Absa Premiership Soweto Derby press conference in Parktown, Happy Jele explained what Bucs will be going for in the match.
“Pirates is in number two and Chiefs is number three, and it will be very crucial for both teams to play for the points. As for us, we would like to get the three points. But we need to look back and say, ‘We’re playing against Chiefs.’ We don’t want to lose the game. We’ll come to a strategy whereby if they come at us we’ll have to settle for a point,” said Jele.
“It’s very crucial at this stage in the league to collect every point. For the supporters, obviously they will come there wanting an exciting game, but as you know we are playing for the results and that’s the most important thing,” explained the defender.
