Cape Town - Former Orlando Pirates player Dumisa Ngobe thinks the Buccaneers are now in the ideal position to resurrect their PSL season.

At this juncture, Pirates occupy the 11th position in the Absa Premiership standings after nine rounds of football.

Most teams in the league have played two more matches than Pirates. Ngobe suggested the situation was not quite as grave as it appeared, primarily because the club is no longer competing in the CAF Confederation Cup.

"Actually, I think they will struggle in one or two games, but honestly going forward, they will pull up their socks," Ngobe told Goal website.

"They might surprise you with their performance because you know they have got the momentum from the CAF Confederation Cup," added Ngobe.

"So, maybe when they come back they will surprise, which I think will happen because they have got the momentum of this competition and there will be no more distractions of having to travel in and out of the country.

"They will be more focused on the league now because it will be all they are playing for at the moment and later the Nedbank Cup."
