The 38-year-old defender has insisted that this is the time that they need the support of their fans the most as they prepare to play their first competitive fixture since the tragic death of Pirates skipper, Senzo “Nzori” Meyiwa.

“I would like to see a full stadium,” Lekgwathi told the Pirates website.  

“It has not been easy for us in the past few days, so, if the fans can really come out and just push us, I think we will be fine.”

“This game will be very difficult for the team, but we want to play to win this game,” added the defender.

“I wish every fan can just come to the stadium and help us win this match because we want to get to another final again, and get strong again.”

'Phinda Mzala' also alluded to the fact that although the training sessions have been different, things are slowly getting back to normal.

“Things will be normal again; it is difficult especially for the younger guys to be strong, but as a team we are doing everything to get everyone strong again,” he said.
