Cape Town - Orlando Pirates defender Lucky Lekgwathi has urged the club fans to show massive support to side when the Buccaneers welcome SuperSport United on Saturday night in Orlando.
Lekgwathi, who has just resumed full training with the team after recovering from a minor injury, said that following the death of Senzo Meyiwa, his teammates will need all the support when they take to the field to host United in a Telkom Knockout Cup semi-final.
“I would like to see a full stadium,” he told orlandopiratesfc..com.
“It has not been easy for us in the past few days, so, if the fans can really come out and just push us, I think we will be fine.
“This game will be very difficult for the team, but we want to play to win this game.
“I wish every fan can just come to the stadium and help us win this match because we want to get to another final again, and get strong again.”
Lekgwathi also revealed that although the training sessions have been different, “things are slowly getting back to normal.”
“Things will be normal again; it is difficult especially for the younger guys to be strong, but as a team we are doing everything to get everyone strong again,” added Lekgwathi.
Orlando Pirates host SuperSport United in their Telkom Knockout semi-final at Orlando Stadium. Kick-off is set for 20:15.
