Orlando Pirates have shown signs of improvement in recent weeks with the Sea Robbers picking up 4 points from a possible six in their last two matches.
The Bucaneers showed great fighting spirit last weekend after fighting back from 3-0 down to claim a 3-3 draw against Maritzburg United.
Before their trip to Pietermaritzburg, Pirates had registered a 2-0 win against struggling Tuks, a result which brought relief in the Sea Robbers camp. Despite the recent form Eric Tinkler is still under immense pressure to deliver given the Bucaneers are still several points behind the league’s front runners.
The Soweto giants will this weekend be engaged in another tough battle when they clash against Jomo Cosmos, a side that has been struggling of late having lost their last two encounters against Tuks and Ajax Cape Town.
Ezenkosi thus head into Saturday’s tie desperate for points as they seek to fight for their status in the 2016/2017 season.
