PO­TEN­TIAL HE­ROES TO­DAY

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - SPORT - Them­binkosi Lorch Tal­ent Chi­wapiwa Vin­cent Pule Mduduzi Mdantshane Je­mon­dre Dick­ens | Minenhle Mkhize

LORCH is Pi­rates’ top goalscorer in this tour­na­ment. He has been in the red hot form, scor­ing three goals in three games. All eyes will be on him again to de­liver on a big stage. He is deadly if given space in and around the box.

THE skil­ful Zim­bab­wean winger is full of guile and pace. Asavela Mbek­ile will have to be at his best. He has the re­spon­si­bil­ity of keep­ing the winger quiet as a dan­ger­ous Chi­wapiwa can win the game for Baroka.

PULE is able to de­liver on the big stage and last sea­son he was the hero for Bid­vest Wits as they lifted the Telkom Knock­out crown. He was also key for Pi­rates in the two Soweto der­bies.

MDANTSHANE has been colos­sal for the Buc­ca­neers in the mid­dle of the park. Against Sun­downs he was the chief de­stroyer in the mid­field. His bat­tle with Xola Mlambo will be very in­ter­est­ing.

HIS abil­ity to hold on to the ball and cre­ate space for team­mates will be cru­cial for Baroka. Dan­ger­ous in the air, he is an old school tar­get man who keeps de­fend­ers busy. Pi­rates need to be wary of him.
