RDS spoilt for choice

Orlando Pirates coach Roger de Sa will for the first time have all his strikers available for selection for the match against SuperSport United on Wednesday at Orlando Stadium.
Benni McCarthy, Takesure Chinyama and Collins Mbesuma are all fit and raring to go for the second half of the Premier Soccer League season and De Sa admits it is a "headache" deciding who will lead from the front on Wednesday.
"For the first time in a long time we have all these three strikers fit… Actually, this is the first time ever for us and it's been nice being able to work with all three of them. It is a bit of headache deciding who to play or not to play. So hopefully we will make the right choice," he says.
Meanwhile, De Sa says he made good use of the break during the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations. The former Bidvest Wits coach, who joined Pirates in September, a couple of months after preseason, says he used the break to catch up.
"I always thought of it [Afcon break] as an advantage for me because I didn't have preseason with the team so I was looking forward to doing things with a little more patience. So I had to use it the best way I can and I did. We had a five-week sort of mini preseason, you could call it," he concludes.
Kick-off for the match between Bucs and Matsatsantsa is at 19h30.
