Soweto Derby Fever – What Chiefs & Pirates Had To Say…

Soweto Derby fever has hit South Africa once again as Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates prepare to do battle, and some of the main characters were in the same room on Wednesday...

Check out some images from inside today's press conference in the gallery above!

Lebogang Manyama, Khama Billiat, Fortune Makaringe, Innocent Maela and both coaches, Ernst Middendorp and Rulani Mokwena, were all in attendance in Killarney this afternoon ahead of Saturday's bumper clash, and the Premier Soccer League shared some of their thoughts going into the game.

Lebogang Manyama - Chiefs:

Fortune Makaringe - Pirates:


Rulani Mokwena - Pirates:


Innocent Maela - Pirates:

Chiefs may have gotten a penalty shootout victory over their rivals last weekend when they met in the Telkom Knockout, but it's been five years since they were able to beat them in the Absa Premiership, something that will no doubt be playing on their minds.

Now is probably as good a time as any for the Glamour Boys as they go into the tie flying high against a Buccaneers side struggling for form, but - as everyone involved will know - form often goes out of the window when it comes to games like this one.

Do you think Chiefs can end their barren run against Pirates tomorrow night?
