Second place still at stake for Pirates

Pirates will return to domestic action tomorrow, still fighting for a continental ticket after failing to win the CAF Confederation Cup on Friday.

Pirates, who are now in seventh position with 40 points, still have three games left against Maritzburg United (May 24), Royal AM (May 27), and SuperSport United (May 30) until the end of their DStv Premiership season.

They hold the key to their comeback to European club football next season.

All The Bucs have to do now is win their games, which might put them in a position to qualify for the Champions League.

Cape Town City (Champions League) and Stellenbosch (Confederation Cup) have concluded their campaigns and must now await the results of the games between Pirates and Royal AM.

Royal AM faces Sundowns today and then Pirates tomorrow, and if they get at least a point in both games, they will be guaranteed at least third place, while at least three points will seal second place.

"The odds are modest based on our league position with three games to go," Mandla Ncikazi, the Pirates interim co-coach, adds.
