Sebola: I am expecting a Soweto Derby draw

Orlando Pirates

A former Orlando Pirates striker did not see the Soweto giants finding the back of the net on Saturday at Orlando Stadium!

The Sea Robbers take on their rivals Kaizer Chiefs at 15:30 with both sides aiming for a full three points.

Andries Sebola who knows what it takes to play in this fixture says the fact that both technical staffs know their jobs are currently not guaranteed will make them too cautious.

"Thembinkosi Lorch and Happy Jele are both fine, they were just resting them for the weekend game, according to my experience,” Sebola tells Kickoff.com.

“Peprah, he can position himself but his finishing is poor, he needs to fix that because the supply coming from Hotto is very good.

"Pirates are doing well in Africa, but locally there's no consistency for both these teams, Chiefs on the other side, it was their first goal in 2022, against Baroka.

"So now people are asking themselves, 'how can we be excited about a Derby played by two off-form teams?'

"Draw is the result I'm expecting because those teams are not scoring goals, Pirates they were fortunate to score those six goals against Leopards, against Cape Town City they failed, Chiefs also, one goal in 2022 no it's not right.

"So a draw will be a fair result because the coaches they need to secure jobs."
