Cape Town - Former Orlando Pirates defender Edward ‘Magents’ Motale says that there is no need for the Buccaneers to rest in order for them to play well. 

Motale told Sport24 that though Pirates are playing many games because of their participation in Africa they are still doing well. 

He said that they have a good depth in their squad, so players can easily be rotated to play in different games. 

"I don't think the players will be tired," Motale said.

"The only only problem would be injuries, which some of the players are facing, but apart from that you can't say fatigue will catch up with them. 

"It's good that they are playing many games because that keeps the players match fit all the time."

The Sea Robbers face Chippa United in a PSL encounter on Tuesday, August 18.

Kick-off is at 19:30.
