encounter against Cape Town City that takes place at the Orlando Stadium on
Pirates are coming off a narrow 4-3 defeat to Bidvest Wits
but Mokwena was happy with the character and effort his team gave against the
Last season's Absa Premiership runners-up have not had the
best of starts to the current campaign having collected eight points from there
first six games so far.
Mokwena told reporters: "I think if we play (in the
same manner as against Wits), nine times out of 10, with the same standard of
performance we would probably win the match.
"But it's a work in progress, we're integrating a lot
of new players and we have changed structures slightly from what we played in
the last two seasons."
The Pirates caretaker coach says they will fight tooth and
nail in the remaining 24 league matches.
Mokwena continued: "So, we just keep working and trying
to make sure.
"There are 72 points left to play for, so we will
continue to fight and make sure we gather as many points as possible."
Kick-off is at 15:00.
