Cape Town - Former Orlando Pirates midfielder Hleza Mofedi expects the Buccaneers to secure a positive result when they play against Kaizer Chiefs at the FNB Stadium on Saturday.

The 36-year-old Mofedi, who is currently without a club, said that Chiefs were likely to produce a quality 90 minutes of football during the fixture, adding that Pirates would have to earn the win.

Pirates have not enjoyed considerable success against Chiefs in recent years and are under pressure to return to winning ways. Mofedi believes that this will happen this weekend.

"Things are going to be different this time, everything is going to change," Mofedi told Goal.

"In fact, Chiefs won't beat Pirates for the second time in one season. This time Pirates is going to beat them, by a 2-1 score."

Pirates encountered a slight obstacle earlier this week, when they were held to a 1-1 draw against Free State Stars at the Charles Mopeli Stadium, which has created some doubts. However, Mofedi is having absolutely none of it.

"I know the mood has already changed in the camp. Players are thinking about that day, although they had midweek games to think about, but the focus is on Saturday. Every player wants to prove himself in the derby.

"Playing against Chiefs is always tough, it will be difficult. But I believe Bucs will go all out for a win, they can't allow Chiefs to beat them again," he concluded.

Kick-off is at 15:30.
