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.

I salute Jele for saying it out loud and don't worry bro that's the same mentality Steve will be applying next door, simply put both teams will be playing not to lose thus very reserved and cautious not to attack from all angles.Same tactics that were applied by both Sundowns and Chiefs in their recent draw game, so nothing new

I don't like Jele's pessimistic attitude, its the 2nd time now I read about his complacency ahead of a crucial match. He showed such a lack of determination and hunger ahead of a confed cup final the other season and he ended up scoring an own goal and we lost the game. The coach must please force Jele to retire.

Thank you Player for clarifying things for these flies masquerading as football supporters. The so-called soweto derby is anonymous to draw.

Are they making Downs their project? I have an important massage to these so-called Soweto gems, "Downs are the Biggest Club in the league to simply hand over the league title to has been...the sooner these flies masquerading as football supporters acknowledge that the only highest position available for grab is the second spot the better".
