Sun­downs still owe us Joyce ‘Mama Joy’ Chauke – Or­lando Pi­rates sup­porter

Soccer Laduma - - Make Your Point -

“This is a very im­por­tant to game to ev­ery­one in­volved with Or­lando Pi­rates. This might not be a Soweto Derby, but this game is equally big. There has been very few draws be­tween the two teams. Mamelodi Sun­downs still owe us big time af­ter beat­ing us 6-0 and we are

still bleed­ing from that. We know that they are not do­ing well at the mo­ment and look more like a team in a build­ing process, so I think it pro­vides us with an op­por­tu­nity to avenge the 6-0. We have to beat them when they are still in the wheel­chair be­cause, once they start walk­ing again, it will be very diff fi­cult to beat them. This game came a at a very good time for us, so it will b be very im­por­tant for our boys to s show up and do the job on Satur­day. I am ex­pect­ing a lot of goals in this game be­cause Pi­rates have been s scor­ings lately and, with the likes of Thabo Qalinge com­ing back from i in­jury, we are fir­ing from all an­gles. The derby win against Kaizer Chiefs re­cently also helped in terms of con­fi­dence and you can see that the boys are high on con­fi­dence. We haven’t had the team like the one we have now in a very long time and, as a sup­porter, I am con­fi­dent be­cause I can see how well the team is do­ing. This might not be a Soweto Derby, but this is a very big game. It is the bat­tle of the star and there are brag­ging rights at­tached to this en­counter. A game of this mag­ni­tude can also de­ter­mine how well or bad our sea­son is go­ing to be. Some teams re­cover from los­ing such games, some don’t. That is how im­por­tant win­ning this game can be. It is also a Gaut­eng derby, ac­com­pa­nied by the brag­ging rights. This will be a cracker of a game. A good show­ing from the boys will also serve as a warn­ing to Chiefs be­cause they are next af­ter Sun­downs. Even though we beat them 3-1 last time we faced them, I am still hurt from the 6-0, so we have to give them an­other 3-1 to make it six.”
