Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Reneilwe Letsholonyane says pride will be at stake when his team take on their bitter rivals, Orlando Pirates on Saturday .

Kick-off is at 15:30.

The two Soweto giants will lock horns in the much anticipated ABSA Premiership encounter at the FNB stadium.

“Yeye” told the Chiefs official website that the intention from the Glamour Boys is to award their loyal supporters with the bragging rights at the end of the game.

“Generally Derbies are important games in every country around the world. Mind you, with the Derby it is not only points that are at stake.”

“There is a lot of pride at stake. It is a matter of bragging rights between the players and supporters on both sides.”

Both sides will be high on confidence heading to the weekend cracker after grabbing the crucial victories recently.

Chiefs eliminated Free State Stars, on penalties, out of the Telkom Knock-Out in the quarter-final stage on Sunday whereas the Buccaneers defeated Esperance De Tunis last Saturday in the CAF Champions League Semi-Final second leg on away goals rule.

The match ended 1-1 as defender Rooi Mahamutsa’s 52nd minute header proved to be a golden ticket for the Sea Robbers to the much desired Final.

Pirates also enjoyed a 4-0 thumping on Golden Arrows last night in the Telkom Knock-Out match played at the Orlando stadium courtesy of Lennox Bacela’s hatrick and Kermit Erasmus goal in the first half.
