The Buccaneers are still training while the other Premierships teams are on holiday due to their continental commitments.

Eric Tinkler's charges clash with AS Kaloum on June 6 at the Orlando Stadium, prior to the competition's group stages.

Jele told Soccer Laduma: "You see we won't be having any time to rest. We have to play in Africa then after that it's the MTN 8 and then the league starts.

"This is our chance to rest and the technical team and manager gave us time off this weekend.

"Next weekend we are playing the team from Guinea. It's a tough long time for us."
