Speaking to the clubs official website, the former Usuthu forward knows that the game will be hostile with the host seeking maximum points to climb out of the relegation zone.

“They are desperately looking for points right now which makes them dangerous so I don’t think it matters whether you play them home or away.

“They will attack, they have to because it may be the only way that they can press other teams and stake a claim for staying in the Premiership,” said Majoro.

Pirates will be looking to chase down Mamelodi Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs who are at the summit of the PSL standings. However, Majoro admits that he expects it to be an open game and no one will be looking to over defend depending on who scores first.

“Most teams park the bus against Pirates and that might be a tactic they adopt should they score first, which is understandable."

He continues add: "But whether the bus is there or not, we have a game plan and we know what needs to be done in order to secure a vital win.”

Kick-off is at 19:30 on Wednesday, February 11.
