First Trophy Search In Four Years, Will Bucs Go Past Their 14th Semi-Final?

The Buccaneers last won a trophy with the Nedbank Cup in 2014. With the side set to go to the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday afternoon for their semi-final match against Chiefs, Sredojevic is the man currently in charge of attempting to bring to Bucs only their second TKO trophy in their history. 

Bucs’ only TKO trophy was won in 2011 after they beat Bidvest Wits 3-1 at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.

Thulasizwe Mbuyane, Daine Klate and Isaac Chansa scored the goals for Bucs while Sifiso Myeni the Students’ consolation goal during the 2011 final.

Important TKO facts for Bucs as supplied by the PSL:

Pirates have played a total of 72 matches in the Telkom Knockout in the PSL era, winning 38 of those to go with 17 draws and 17 defeats. They have scored 116 goals in that time and conceded 75, while they have faced 25 different opponents. No side has scored more goals than them in the PSL era.

For all of their domestic success down the years, Pirates have only ever won the Telkom Knockout title once, in 2011. This despite reaching the final on a total of eight occasions. Pirates have reached the second greatest number of finals in Telkom Knockout history, behind only Chiefs (17).

Pirates have lost in the semi-finals of the Telkom Knockout in three of the last four seasons and overall have won only five of their 13 appearances in this stage of the competition in the PSL era.
