D-D-L-L-D-L-L For Bucs With CT City Next

Orlando Pirates will give it another go in attempting to turn their ship around when they play against Cape Town City on the weekend.

Following their 2-1 loss against Bidvest Wits on Wednesday, Bucs are facing an uphill battle as they travel to the high-flying Mother City outfit, that is managed by their former coach Eric Tinkler.

Pirates last won a game in November, when they beat Chippa United 1-0 through a Tendai Ndoro goal. Under Augusto Palacios and his technical team, the team has gone seven games without a victory, with the Soweto giants sliding to 10th place on the Absa Premiership in the process.

In their games since November 30, Pirates drew 0-0 against Baroka, drew 2-2 against Highlands Park, lost 2-1 against Maritburg United, lost 2-1 against Bloemfontein Celtic, drew 0-0 against Platinum Stars, lost 6-0 against Mamelodi Sundowns and then went down 2-1 to Wits on Wednesday. The team has conceded a whopping 15 goals in the last seven games and scored just six.

Their first round game against City at Orlando Stadium in September ended in a 0-0 draw. On Saturday, Palacios and his charges will go to the Cape Town Stadium without Jackson Mabokgwane, as the goalkeeper was red-carded against Wits.

Brighton Mhlongo is yet to receive the all-clear from the medical team, as he has been recovering from an injury. As things stand, Siyabonga Mpontshane is the only available goalkeeper for the next game unless they have their new signing registered before the clash.

Furthermore, there have been injury concerns for some of the Bucs players including Thabo Rakhale, Thabo Qalinge, Gift Motupa and Mpho Makola.
