Bucs won't show any Royal respect

Orlando Pirates have an opportunity to close the gap between them and leaders SuperSport United to just three points when they engage battling Thanda Royal Zulu at Kings Park Stadium tomorrow at 3.30pm.

The match will also see Pirates draw level in terms of games played with Matsatsantsa who have continental commitments this weekend.

Rudi Krol's side are on top of their game and they have players who can tear Amabhubesi to shreds in their own enclosure.

Pirates are also likely to rule the stands because Durban is like their second home.

Krol and his soldiers have registered crucial points that renewed their once-fading title hopes and it hard to see TRZ stopping them. Their emphatic 2-0 win over pretenders to the title, Mamelodi Sundowns, proved Bucs' credentials.

Amabhubesi have the most benign defence in the league and the likes of Tonic Chabalala, Ahmed Mohammed and Thabiso Rammile should struggle to cope with the skill and speed of Dikgang Mabalane, Teko Modise and Katlego Mashego.

The home side's coach, Roger Palmgren, will have all the players available for the match, bar the suspended Isaac Leshabane.

Pirates' Benson Mhlongo is doubtful due to injury while Lucky Lekgwathi serves the last match of a two-game suspension.

While pundits have tipped them to prevail, Pirates' life could be made difficult by players like Clifford Mulenga and Nkosinathi Nhleko, who still has that scoring touch.
