Orlando Pirates wil need to kick into a higher gear if they want to beat Swallows when the PSL resumes from the international break.

Pirates have yet to bank a win this season with draws against Stellenbosch and Gallants.

The Bucs, who lost their coach Josef Zinnbauer ahead of the campaign, will not be overly enthusiastic to meet Swallows on Saturday at 3pm.


The Buccaneers were dumped out of the MTN8 following a double act from Ruzaigh Gamildien. The Swallows forward is ready for more.

“We also enjoy playing big teams because it takes the pressure off us. We’ve enjoyed playing against Pirates and we are looking forward to continuing with that this weekend,” he said.


“Good teamwork first of all, that’s what you can expect from us. They will be doing their homework on us and what didn’t work in the past,” added the 32-year-old.

“We are also trying to fix certain areas we are lacking and we have to continue with the current run that we have.”

Orlando Pirates were boosted at the end of the transfer window with the arrivals of Olisa Ndah, who joined from newly crowned Nigerian Premier League champions Akwa United, and Kwame Peprah, who moved to South Africa from King Faisal Football Club in Ghana.

Ndah, a 23-year-old towering defender, is regarding as a leading player in his homeland while Peprah is a striker who scored 12 goals and 10 assists in his 29 appearances for his club last term.

Happy Jele is also in line to make his 400th appearance for the Bucs.

Suggested bet: Pirates to win 1-0 at 4.9
