ORLANDO PIRATES NOT EXACTLY PULLING UP TREES THIS SEASON
Meanwhile, Soweto rivals Pirates remain in the hunt for trophies on three fronts, but there’s no guarantee they’ll beat Sundowns in the MTN8 final and they’ve got plenty of progress still to make in the Nedbank Cup. As far as the league is concerned, the Buccaneers lie 13th in the table after five matches. They trail Sundowns by 17 points already, and even if they win their three matches in hand, that gap is still a whopping eight points. Let’s also not forget that Pirates were dumped out of the CAF Champions League.
