Cape Town - Former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder and legend Teenage Dladla says that Orlando Pirates will have the upper hand this time against Chippa United despite their past losses.

The Amakhosi legend slammed every negative comment that has been placed on Pirates and said the boys have been doing well and should keep with the positive mentality.

“I think Orlando Pirates will have the upper hand on this one against Chippa because they have been playing continuously whilst Chippa had a break and they didn’t,” Dladla told Sport24.

“I don’t believe that Pirates are slacking as everyone has been saying.

“The boys have been doing well, and it’s the players who have to keep that positive mentality and they are definitely in it to win it.

“Thabo Rakhale definitely stands out for me and he is an exception to the game of football. He will definitely push the team much further.

“These boys are on fire and they should up the Bucs and dominate this season.

The Bucs will challenge Chippa United in the Absa Premiership clash at Orlando stadium on Tuesday, August 18.

Kick-off is set for 19:30.
