It may seem like Orlando Pirates coach Josef Zinnbauer has finally been figured out by some of his opponents regarding his football philosophy, following the Buccaneers' first Absa Premiership loss under his tutelage, against Kaizer Chiefs last the weekend.
Prior to the Soweto Derby, the German coach had led Pirates to an unbeaten eight-match streak of seven wins and a draw, as Bucs suddenly turned into a championship chasing side after a stuttering start to the season under the previous technical team.
While Zinnbauer will look to guide Bucs back to winning ways in this coming weekend’s match against Golden Arrows, the KwaZulu-Natal team's coach Steve Komphela seems to already know how to plan to upset the Soweto giants at the Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium on Saturday.
Arrows, who are currently in 8th place on the standings, want to cement their position inside the top eight bracket on the log.
“I foresee a lot of counter play, counter attacks from both sides. We are prepared, and every player at their particular positions are ready to perform,” said Komphela, as quoted on Arrows’ official Twitter account.
Abafana Bes’thende drew 0-0 with Bucs in their first round match at Orlando Stadium in August.
