Speaking to the Buccaneers’ website, Makola strongly
believes that he has nothing to prove and his approach to the game will be same
as any other encounter.
“It’s going to be a tough game hey,” said Makola.
“We have been training hard and we are prepared to face
them. Personally I have nothing to prove therefore I will approach this match
like any other game.”
Scoring against his former employer the last time Pirates
faced Stars at the Orlando, Makola reveals he had “mixed emotions” but does not
rule out that the opportunity will come again.
“I can’t say whether I’m going to score or not but obviously
if it comes I will welcome the opportunity, the most important thing is for me
to play well and contribute to the overall team effort.”
“At the end of the day the three points are more important
than anything else,” added Makola.
Pirates will look to return to winning ways in the Absa
Premiership when they host Free State in Orlando.
Last season Bucs took four points off Ea Lla Koto, winning
2-0 in Soweto and drawing 1-1 away in the Free State.
Kick-off set for 20:15 on Saturday, October 18.
