The Ghost to face Dikwena |
Orlando Pirates will face Platinum Stars in a PSL clash this evening at Orlando Stadium in Soweto. The encounter is expected to light up the house with much expectations from both clubs.. The Buccaneers come into the match lying 2nd on the log after collecting 7 points from 3 games. Bucs away against Bidvest Wits over the past weekend was postponed due to security reason. While Platinum Stars are in position 9th after 4 games managing only 3 points from the games.
The last game between the two clubs was in the pre-season tournament (Maize Cup) which Orlando Pirates won through a penalty shootout. Filipe Ovono was the hero of the day on that day in Rustenburg.
The Buccaneers are yet to lose a match this year and will look to cement their place at the top of the log with a win. Bucs have a quality team and will seek a win to bounce back to the top of the log after dropping to position 2 after the postponed match. The return of Oupa Manyisa has proved vital as the club is showing more effectiveness when attacking and with the return of Brighton Mhlongo in post for the club, the fans have a goalkeeper they can trust. The goal minder has been outstanding in the clubs last 2 games putting gin man of the match performances since the returning to the starting line-up. Pirates coach Muhsin Ertugral will look up to his charges to show up for the party and win it for the fans at home.
The visitors will have to deal with current PSL leading goal scorer Tendai Ndoro who managed to bad 5 goals in two games. Dikwena have been struggling since the start of the season losing at home in front of their home supporters. The recent loss to newly promoted club Baroka was a bitter one to swallow, losing to a new club that collect its first 3 points against a team that came close to winning the championship last season. Stars coach Cavin Johnson, who is enjoying his stint with Dikwena since taking over the reign believes they have a good chance to upset the Buccaneers at home. He stated they have a team that can compete and that his boys will do their best to return home with maximum points
