Pirates players to watch v Baroka


Orlando Pirates welcome Baroka this afternoon in a DStv Premiership at Orlando Stadium.

Fresh off a feel-good result from the past weekend, when they beat SuperSport United 2-1 win, the Buccaneers will be looking to make it three wins in a row in the league.

Pirates players to watch…

Wayde Jooste

Jooste has fitted in like a glove at Pirates, having started in two of the team’s DStv Premiership matches, as well as all the matches in the MTN8 so far.

The versatile star has excelled as a winger at his previous clubs but has been slotted at right back at the Buccaneers and is doing well to prove that he is comfortable both in attack and in defence.

He has provided a single assist so far this campaign.

Ben Motshwari

In a team boasting a lot of midfield depth and playing for a coach that rotates his squad, Motshwari’s importance in the Pirates side is underlined by the mere fact that he has started every game across all competitions this season.

Against a Baroka outfit that has had the better of Pirates in the past, the hard working midfielder will have another important role to play.

Zakhele Lepasa

With two goals to his name already this season, Lepasa has proven to be an integral part of the Pirates attack line.

He has spearheaded the Pirates attack in the absence of Gabadinho Mhango due to injury and has done a decent job.

The Soweto-born will be eager to build on his strong start to the 2020/21 season performance.
