Stuttering Pirates facing must-win Sekhukhune clash


Coach Mandla Ncikazi says Orlando Pirates are facing a must-win encounter against Sekhukhune United in a DStv Premiership clash at Orlando Stadium.

Pirates - in seventh position in the standings - have suffered an indifferent spell of form after three consecutive draws and a defeat in their last four league encounters.

While new boys Sekhukhune United have hit form with three wins on the bounce to climb up to fifth position under head coach MacDonald Makhubedu.

"We have a responsibility to see the light when everybody sees darkness," Ncikazi said.

"That's our responsibility as leaders, that's our responsibility as coaches. The players are looking in good shape and a good state of mind and we just need to display that on the field of play and get the points.

"It's really a must that we win this game."

Kick-off is at 17:30.
