Meyiwa ready for No 1 jersey

Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa up for the Kaizer Chiefs clash

Posted: 23 February 2011 Time: 01:32 pm

Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa is ready to grab his chance of keeping the No 1 jersey when the Mighty Buccaneers take on Kaizer Chiefs in the Soweto Derby at FNB Stadium on Saturday. 

Having been given the chance to play against AmaZulu on Sunday, Meyiwa is set to be handed the shirt again after goalkeeper Moeneeb Josephs was ruled out of action for the Derby and possibly until the end of the season.   The Durban-born goalkeeper is already preparing both physically and mentally for the big game this weekend.

_quote   Speaking to KickOff.com, Meyiwa says his team-mates have been motivating him at training.   "We have still not yet been told about the length of Moeneeb's injury but if he is ruled out of action for the rest of the season it is very bad news as he has been doing well this season.   "I wouldn't say that I am happy that I will play now because of Moeneeb's injury, but everybody is happy when they get an opportunity to play in a big game, like the Derby against Chiefs. The guys have been encouraging and have assured me of maximum protection at the back."   Meyiwa concedes that Chiefs owe them lot having beaten Pirates twice this season.   "There have been a few minor injuries but we are hoping that the rest of the guys will recover in time for the game. We are going to this game as underdogs so we need to work hard and concentrate from the first to the last whistle."   The 23-year-old keeper suggests that his understudy Sikhumbuzo Nkumane could sit on the bench on Saturday.   "I wish he could be playing lot more for both the Under-20s and Under-23s as this helped (Ithumeleng) Khune a lot in gaining experience. He has great potential and with the guidance of senior players like Lucas Thwala and Lucky Lekgwathi he will benefit a lot in his career." 

KIckoff.com has heard that sormer SuperSport United goalkeeper Emille Baron could join Orlando Pirates on a short-term deal until the end of the season.

yhehake Senzo & No1 jersy. I would say ask for an advise from Mr False Teeth (aka dom kat)but there is nothing you will get there how to Stop Khosification. Instead he will ask you to look for his pair of mazinyo that he lost on the 6-1 game. Hard luck chanaa

Hehehe... How the hell do you think you are motivating Senzo if you still accuse him of costing Bugz the league? Are you trying to convince yourself that Senzo is going to survive on Saterday?

Klate scored an own goal because of fear of Chiefs and he is more experienced than this poor Senzo. Your captain still has flashes of a run that Musona took with him moments before Klate scored home.

Try a rope around your neck, hang it, kick the chair and count silently to 10, you'd be doing yourself and everyone else a favour.

Or dial 0861 3-1 3-0 6-1 and choose option 26, then dial 3-0 again!

Me too, i see problems for Cowszer pap&cabbage FC. Someone will be hooting and easily go pass Valery ne highway netting his brace for the season while Khune will be doing another WWW E-velocity wrestling thing and this time will be red carded and the monkeys from the Natulawayo farm will throw soft pap and rotten cabbage for Max the Gorilla Letshwenenyane disrupting the match. Shapa!! bhakaniya Shapa!!!
