Pirates Have A New Goal: Leapfrog Kaizer Chiefs

"It's amazing what can happen when you stick to your guns." These were the words of lifelong Orlando Pirates fan Gio De Waal. He, like many other Buccaneers, was elated after his side's 1-0 victory over Free State Stars on Saturday. The team looks to slowly be rebuilding after a tough start to the season. The question is: what is their objective now?

"The objective has changed," De Waal said.

"We cannot win the league, we can't win anything else, maybe Nedbank, but that's another story.

"I think our priority has changed to pride, we would just be happy to leapfrog Kaizer Chiefs in the league."

Pirates have been blessed with the timely arrival of goals from their star striker Tendai Ndoro, who once again for the Sea Robbers in their victory on the weekend.

"I don't know what we would do without that boy at the moment. Thank God, he has found his feet," De Waal added. 

"Now, we seek the bragging rights of Soweto, hopefully that Ndoro is going to fire us there."

This weekend's win saw Pirates move up to sixth on the log, which is impressive considering they were languishing around 12th earlier in the season. They are four points behind Kaizer Chiefs; however, Amakhosi have a game in hand and face Mpumalanga Black Aces on Tuesday… Things are getting interesting, let the heat of the finish begin.

What are Pirates chances of leapfrogging Chiefs in the league? Are their recent good performance due to Ndoro's good form in front of goals? Or would the Sea Robbers be fine without him?
