Wounded Chippa Take Aim At Pirates

The Orlando Pirates should be wary of their opponents in their next meeting, as they have promised to leave with at least three points.

While the Buccaneers will be looking to make it two wins in a row after a hard-fought 1-0 win over Swallows last Saturday, Chippa United are currently looking like wounded lions after their first loss of the season on Sunday at Royal AM.

On Saturday, the Chilli Boys will face the Buccaneers at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium, and midfielder Sammy Seabi believes the Gqeberha-based side has learned from its past and will not make things easy for the Soweto giants.

“I won't say much went wrong in that game, but I believe it is something from which we must learn. I feel we have identified where we went wrong and where we need to improve, and we are now preparing for the game against the Pirates on Saturday. I feel we are prepared, and we have addressed any difficulties that may have arisen.

We're ready now, and I feel we'll be ready for the next game,” Seabi said through the club's media department.

The 26-year-old, who is on loan from Mamelodi Sundowns, said that their coach Gavin Hunt has told them what they need to do to beat Buccaneers.

“He (Hunt) has been telling us a lot of tactical things that we should be mindful of. We're playing a very good Pirates team, so we have high expectations of our guys, including myself. All we have to do now is man up and accept responsibility. We'll be fine; we've done it before, and I'm confident we'll be able to do it again on Saturday.

We'll be fine; we've done it before, and I'm confident we'll be able to do it again on Saturday. “Getting three points on Saturday is crucial because it will boost our morale and confidence because we just came off a loss and need to redeem ourselves and get back on track,” Seabi said.
