Johannesburg - Orlando Pirates captain, Lucky Lekgwathi, is pleased with his side’s Telkom Knockout draw to face Polokwane City.
The soccer-laduma website reports, the Buccaneers will welcome Rise and Shine to Johannesburg, as Bucs look set to reach their sixth cup final in two seasons.
At 38, the Buccaneers' stalwart skipper was not deterred by his side's
loss to bitter rivals, Kaizer Chiefs this past Saturday in the MTN8
final, but promised that his side was eager to reach yet another final
and claim some silverware for the ghost.
“It is a great test for us; Polokwane City will come to Johannesburg to
fight because we beat them in the league already, so, for us, we will
have to prepare very nice for them,” Lekgwathi told the Pirates official
“At Pirates we all know it is another cup we are going to play and we
have to win it; it is not going to be easy but the message we have is
that we must play to win every match and make the final again,” he
Orlando Pirates have only claimed the Nedbank Cup out of a possible
five trophies, having missed out on last season’s MTN8 and Telkom
Knockout titles, the CAF Champions League and this year’s edition the
MTN8 where they were defeated by Kaizer Chiefs.
