Cape Town - Bafana Bafana legend Mark Williams believes Saturday's Soweto derby between Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates will be a pulsating affair packed with goals.
Despite the derby losing some of its sparkle in recent years due to a plethora of draws and a lack of goals, Williams takes the view that the form and momentum of both clubs will ensure plenty of action for fans to enjoy.
The former Amakhosi hitman is also of the opinion the greatly improved form of Pirates going into the fixture is significant. He said: "No-one's had the bravery to go for the win because of the size of the game.
"The derby is very hyped up. But I think that this is going to be the first time that I can say that it's not going to be a lovely draw. And the reason why I'm saying that is because of the mentality of the Pirates coach (Sredojevic).
"And I'm thinking that (Chiefs coach) Steve Komphela might be sitting thinking to himself‚ ‘Do I play 4-4-2‚ and take on Pirates?’ Because he's got the players to.
"If you really want to see a team who are on form‚ and I think I said it from about two months ago, this Pirates is a different kettle of fish.
"Take a gamble and try to get the three points. I know the coach of Pirates is definitely going to go for it. It's just Steve’s response to that. If he also goes for it maybe we can see a boxing match going the 12 rounds."
Saturday's game is set to take place at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg.
The action gets underway from 15:30.
