Pirates Fan: Our Aim Is Africa

With the league title clearly out of reach for Eric Tinkler's Orlando Pirates team, the only hope of silverware left for them this season is the Nedbank Cup.

The team has just come off a disappointing result against relegation-threatened Maritzburg United, who held Bucs to a 0-0 draw.

"We could have beaten Maritzburg but we should have been aware of the fact that they are fighting relegation and were going to come at us," Mama Joy, an Orlando Pirates fanatic, said.

The Buccaneers are fighting to remain in the top eight and the recent draw puts them under pressure as they now sit in six position, while the teams below them are just a couple of points away. Pirates will be looking to take part in next season's MTN 8 and holds the record as one of the clubs to have always been in the competition.

With the Nedbank Cup as their only option available for silverware at present, Pirates will be hoping to be victorious and move into Africa once again.

"We have to win the Nedbank Cup!" Mama added

"Africa is our aim at the moment."

As a Pirates supporter, would you want your team to win the Nedbank Cup, considering they will then have to participate in continental competition next season and therefore be robbed of another pre-season?
