Thamsanqa Gabuza and Luvuyo Memela feature on a list with Orlando Pirates’ legends for goals scored in a Soweto Derby.
Gabuza and Memela, who have both been struggling for game-time this season, would be keen to get a run in Milutin Sredojevic’s team as Bucs take on Kaizer Chiefs in their Telkom Knockout semi-final match this coming weekend.
Over the years, the Buccaneers have had a number of great players who contributed to the team in different ways, whether it was scoring goals or assisting in scoring them, as well as those whose duties were to defend them and keeping clean sheets.
In the history of the two powerhouses of South African football, in 90 matches between Bucs and Chiefs since 1985, Amakhosi have won 33 (24 league), while Ezimnyama have won 23 (15 league). There have been 34 (27 league) draws between the two sides. Amakhosi have scored 94 (72 league) goals compared to Bucs’ 79 (57 league).
Jerry Sikhosana is Bucs’ top goalscorer in Soweto Derby matches with six goals. From the current team, only Gabuza and Memela feature on Bucs’ list of top goalscorers in Soweto Derbies with two goals each.
