Leopards a fierce prospect

Black Leopards lost the first round of their Castle Premiership clash with Orlando Pirates on Wednesday, but Lidoda Duvha's form suggests it will not be easy for Bucs in Thohoyandou tomorrow.

Leopards did not go down without a fight and put on a courageous display at Ellis Park, and the Buccaneers should expect a tough outing in Thohoyandou.

Myron Shongwe showed fierceness upfront but was unlucky not to have scored and should be more dangerous playing at home.

But the hosts' forwards will find Pirates more solid at the back, thanks to the acquisition yesterday of former Moroka Swallows defender Gary McNab.

McNab, who is the co-owner of Vodacom Promotional League side Raiders FC, will stay with Bucs until the end of the season.

"Our spirit has not been demoralised by the defeat on Wednesday and we are looking forward to meeting Pirates at home," Tshifhiwa Thidiela, Leopards' spokesman, said yesterday.

"We played well against them and we will try to get a win at home.

"I urge our supporters to buy tickets; they are already available at Computicket and to come in large numbers to the stadium to rally behind the team."

Mickey Modisane, Bucs' spokesman, said they will fight tooth and nail for a win.

"The win on Wednesday has settled us a bit, but we are still in the quagmire and therefore winning in Thohoyandou is crucial for our quest to better our position on the log," Modisane said.

Fernando Matola has an important role to play for Leopards at the back, especially with right-back Luvhengo Mungomeni missing due to suspension.

Reinstated Pirates captain Benedict Vilakazi is expected to once more lead by example in the middle of the park.

The match kicks off at 3.45pm.
