Cape Town - Orlando Pirates winger Thabo Rakhale will appear in his first Carling Black Label Cup after picking up the most supporter votes for an outfield player at the club.

The 25-year-old's recent form for the club has been recognised by Buccaneers fans, and he can't wait to repay their faith in him by putting on a show at the FNB Stadium against Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday.

"This will be my first time in the starting line-up for the CBL Cup and I want to thank the supporters for voting for me. It shows they enjoy what I do on the field of play and what I contribute to the team," Rakhale told Soccer Laduma.

One of Rakhale's major attributes that helped him stand out for fans is his dribbling ability, but the forward admits he can sometimes get a bit carried away.

"I know supporters enjoy skills and dribbling from players because that's part of the reason why they come to the stadium," he added.

"I don't do it all the time. I only dribble when it's necessary for me to dribble."

Kick-off is at 15:30.
