SuperSport are set to welcome The Buccaneers to the Mbombela Stadium in Polokwane for an Absa Premiership clash on Wednesday evening (19h30).
Their previous meeting back in September saw Pirates end a 10-match unbeaten run against Matsatsantsa as they registered a resounding 3-1 victory at the Orlando Stadium.
This has led Letsholonyane and his teammates to be wary of the rise of Milutin Sredojevic’s charges, and the 36-year-old further believes the work of assistant coaches Rhulani Mokwena and recent addition Fadlu Davids augurs well for the club going forward.
“They have a quality technical team with a mixture of young and old, and they are football people whose knowledge has helped the team improve after a very long time,” said Letsholonyane.
“You can see there is more structure and organisation, and the players are enjoying themselves while doing the right things most of the time.
“I think in the near future they’ll probably be one of the best teams in the country again.”
SuperSport are currently in sixth position with 29 points from 20 games while Pirates occupy third spot with 33 points from 19 matches, making this a high-stakes encounter for both sides in the bigger scheme of the league title race.
