Motshwari downplays Bucs’ away form

Orlando Pirates

READ: Motshwari assesses Pirates progress

Pirates are set to take on an Usuthu side languishing in bottom place on the table following their points deduction by FIFA, expecting no walk in the park at King Zwelithini Stadium.

Having come off a 0-0 draw at home to Golden Arrows, Motshwari believes it will be an even harder task to try and make up those points dropped on the road.

“It’s going to be a difficult one, especially going away after dropping points at home, from which I think we were supposed to get maximum points, but we couldn’t – we tried our level best,” Motshwari tells

“It’s going to be tough, but we will go down there, play our normal game – our Pirates way. We are not going to change anything, we are going to keep on attacking and we will see from there.”

The Buccaneers have been more convincing on their travels thus far, winning three and losing only to Bloemfontein Celtic out of their four away fixtures.

However, the 27-year-old workhorse insists it is never easy taking on teams in their own backyard.

“I wouldn’t say we are comfortable playing away from home because we even win at home, and for any club it’s difficult to play away,” he says.

“For us, going there is going to be a challenge and there’s not more confidence in playing away than at home.

“It’s just another game that we have to concentrate on, go out there and fight for three points.”
