De Sa gets his Champs League wish

Orlando Pirates to play CAF Champions League match at Orlando Stadium

Posted: 29 January 2013 Time: 03:07 pm

Orlando Pirates say they have “learnt from their mistakes” and will take their CAF Champions League game against Comoros club Djabal to Orlando Stadium.

The fixture is set for just under a week after the final of the Africa Cup of Nations: February 16 at 8pm.

Pirates are returning to the CAF competition for a second year in succession, after being booted out of the tournament by Recreativo Libolo of Angola in Port Elizabeth last year.

Roger de Sa has made it plain he wants to keep the match in Orlando, and it seems the coach has got his wish.

“We learnt from our mistakes in the past but this year we are determined to do well in the CAF Champions League,” Pirates communication manager Mickey Modisane says. “We also still have a League title to fight for and we hope to do well in our first League match against SuperSport United on February 13.”

Modisane confirms that Bucs’ League match against Moroka Swallows, which was set to be played on February 17 at Dobsonville Stadium, has been postponed to February 26, at the same venue.

mxm,you cant blame the stadium, PE is in SA so logically it will be an advantage to Gorillas...They can take the game to Khoza's house and play in the front door but you dont have quality to beat Comoros club Djabal you don't. 2013 its a year where everything will be back to its normal state,beginning of the 7 year draught.

Mabhakaniya, we must go to the stadium in great numbers....the team needs our support. This time around we are getting the second star. We have given the chimpanzees and many others enough time to match us but they failed.
