Lekgwathi ready for Ajax CT

2010-10-27 14:40

Johannesburg - Orlando Pirates captain Lucky Lekgwathi is eager to end Ajax Cape Town's unbeaten record in the Premier Soccer League this Saturday.

The Bucs brought to an end Mamelodi Sundowns' 100% record recently and the defender is hoping for more of the same at the Orlando Stadium.

The Pirates stalwart said in his column on the club's official website: 'This victory (over Arrows) comes at the right time as we prepare to face Ajax Cape Town, who are yet to taste defeat in the league this season - and this presents a new but yet attainable target.

'Before we beat Mamelodi Sundowns two weeks ago, they were undefeated in the league and yet we turn the tables on them and hopefully when we host the Urban Warriors on Saturday, we can do the same.

'Ajax have always been tough customers and we expect the same on Saturday.

'We will give them kind of respect that they deserve but we will bring the fight to them because we are desperate for the three points.'

Pirates currently occupy fifth place on the league table, four points behind leaders Sundowns.

    I dont have any problem with my favourite club , If Rudi can use other players like Malokose,Mayambela,Teko,Phenyo and Masina we might get the right full striker to furnish off rebounding balls expecially Malokose as a striker.Pirates will win Telkom and the legue.

    Adopting a winning mentality is a plus for a team of the Buccaneers calibre.But my only fear is when this attribute borders on taken opponents for granted like we did against Mpumalanga Black Aces. That we came down with a thud is well-documented. My other concern is when sports commentators corner our players & ask for comments on forth-coming games. What happened to Mickey Modisane? Has he been relegated to the Bucs' web-site? Players should be doing the 'talking' on the field of play. Or kanjani?
