Lucky: It's war against Chiefs

2010-09-23 10:48

Johannesburg - Orlando Pirates captain Lucky Lekgwathi has declared war on Kaizer Chiefs ahead of the MTN8 semi-final showdown on Sunday.

The Buccaneers are at a disadvantage going into the second leg of the Soweto derby at FNB Stadium, having drawn the reverse fixture 1-1 as hosts, gifting Amakhosi a vital away goal.

However, despite their arch-rivals heading into the clash in a more favourable position, 'Phinda Mzala' believes Pirates can secure a place in the final of the R8m tournament.

"It is war my friends! This is one hell of a game, which we must win at all cost," he told the club's official website.

"Yes, we have conceded an away goal, which automatically makes Chiefs the favorites heading into this game but I strongly believe the outcome of this clash is far from over.

"We are still in the race for a spot in the final and we cannot afford to miss out on yet another attempt at the MTN8 trophy.

"We have studied our opponents well and we are going to be ruthless from the start to finish.

"I would like to assure all of you that we are ready to die with our boots on this Sunday. The spirit in the camp is very high and we are all determined to win this game."

Lekgwathi admitted the Glamour Boys will be hard to break down, but is determined to ensure his team-mates win the encounter to please the club's trophy-starved supporters.

"I admit, it's not going to be easy for us because Chiefs are a good side but I strongly believe with the players we have got, we have a good opportunity to go through to the final," he added.

"On a personal level, I'm really looking forward to this encounter. But more importantly having played at this club for over seven seasons, I have a burning desire to win something this season for all the supporters who have been behind me and the team all these years."

    Its funny that everytime Pirates is playing Chiefs, we hear their players telling us how ready they r and yet they never do anything. I guess its the ghost in their heads playing tricks on them. They can study Chiefs day in and day out, but they will never beat us on a cup game. Yende is going to do something which Pirates never expected. Teko is going to get eShibobo from Yende and Masango.

    It's also funny how the chiefs fans always make noise on how much they going to crush the bones when in actually fact we always give them a hard game.. I mean we always make it difficult for them to even score the one goal they score! so kaizer chops fans don't ever talk about walks in the parks when you play with us..

    Even my nine years old boy knows a winning combination for Pirates against Chiefs,the problem is that Krol is a hard nut 2 crack,he takes nobody's advice.In order for Krol to beat Chiefs,he must play the likes of Tlou Segolela,Dikgang Mabalane,Daine Klate and Mongale on flanks.Isaac Chansa and Teko must be played in the middle of the park, NOT ON FLANKS PLEASE!!Gert Schalkwyk must be introduced in our striking force of Mbuyane,Otorogu and the malawian striker.A wise coach will consider these players especialy to solve our goals drought problem.With the above combination,the only team that can beat Pirates is Pirates.Once Pirates,always a Bakashushu.
