Moloi urges Bucs to attack

Moloi urges Bucs to attack

Posted: 30 October 2009 Time: 09:46 am

Former Orlando Pirates midfielder Tebogo Moloi has urged Bucs to go all out and attack during the Soweto Derby at Orlando Stadium tomorrow.

Pirates enter tomorrow’s game against Kaizer Chiefs after three consecutive losses in the Absa Premiership while the Amakhosi appear to have improved their form in their past few games which also saw them beating Golden Arrows on Wednesday.   Speaking to KickOff.com before the crunch game between the two Soweto giants, ‘Tebza Ngwana’, as Moloi was known during his days in the famous black and white jersey, advised Bucs’ players to look for other players to turn on the heat for them on Saturday instead of relying on Teko Modise to produce the magic.   “There is confusion in the team. The players do not seem to realise their weakness and strengths when going into the field. They can’t pick out a player who is on top of his game and give him support. They seem to rely on Modise to turn the magic and if he can’t make things happen, the whole team loses hope.   “If Teko is not on form, they need to find another player on the field who can turn on the heat. I also hear people talk about a crisis when Benson is out injured and Teko off form, but for me there is no crisis at all in the club.

_quote  “Pirates is big team and has lots of depth. We have the likes of Lebo Mothibantwa and Joseph Kamwendo who can also play in those positions.   “The only way Pirates can win this game is by attacking full out instead of relying on two holding midfielders.   “In our time we had, Bashin (Mahlangu), Botsotso (Makhanya) and myself focusing on attack and only Jetrho Kambala as our holding midfielder. I will be happy to see that happening with Pirates again."   Moloi also warned Pirates about allowing Chiefs to settle first in the game.   “You have to show from the first minute that you are in command and put Chiefs on the back foot because once their crowd gets excited with their play, it is going to be big problem for Bucs players.   “If they do something, we have to equal it. When they had Jabu Pule (Mahlangu), we also had Steve Lekoelea to excite out supporters,” he adds.

And these are supposed to be proffesional players and they cant read the game - it makes me wonder

I dont see Pirates winning the derby tomorrow @ all maybe in the second round they can do it. I think the focus now should be on regrouping and learn to play as a team & not relying on some so called 'star players'.

this whole Soweto derby is really killing my nerv, this two teams in 20 years have won total of 6 SA CHAMPIONSHIP thats equal to Sundowns alone. my point here is until this 2 used to be hot in 70s teams start winning PSL the they can get the king treatment but am disappointed with media.

Do you want us to focus on Sundowns and SSU. Please man, what kind of a derby is that if you can't even fill 30% of Caledonian stadium (a two thousand seat). The Soweto Derby is ranked top 5 in the world not in Africa but the entire world. Stop critisizing our media.

@Scorpion the sea robber is now da man.

I agree wit Tebza pirares has gud talent n skillfull players,its time Mashego and Mabalane stop look'n at Teko when we are in position Kamwendo is a great distributor of the ball Jali is on form bring all the players into play,we have strong wings in Lekgwathi and Jele use them.

Teko is a great player n cn win us games bt dont over work him.

Gud luck sea robbers

Buccaneers must score first and the 3 points would be collected. Attack…attack.. Victor Bondarenko’s attitudes.
