Former Orlando Pirates star Benson Mhlongo has supported the momentum Buccaneers side to win the high pitch this season. Mhlongo was important for the Pirates side that won consecutive high pitches in the 2010/11 and 2011/12 seasons under Ruud Krol, Julio Leal and Augusto Palacios. Josez Zinnbauer's side have effectively won the MTN8 and are at present top choices to secure the Nedbank Cup as they have arrived at the quarter-finals, where they will confront either Mamelodi Sundowns or Polokwane City. While Pirates sit three focuses untied of table clinchers Mamelodi Sundowns who have three games, Mhlongo says it wouldn't be an amazement if the Soweto monsters were to leave with each of the three prizes this season.
"I don't think about Pirates winning the high pitch and considering it a stun. Would they be able to do it once more? What's more, the appropriate response is yes they can," Mhlongo tells KickOff.com. Mhlongo says the way that difficult to-beat groups like Sundowns are as yet engaged with both the Nedbank Cup and the class race shouldn't prevent the Pirates players reported by Goal.com. "It is conceivable... alright where was Sundowns when they [Pirates] won the best eight [MTN8]? Every one of those groups that are on top of the log table were included, however Pirates actually won it. So I don't believe Pirates' accomplishment in the main eight can be addressed in light of the fact that they played the best eight groups in the class.
"They've done it previously, so they can do it once more. Regardless of whether they have an awful game to pound the outcomes, that is the thing that they should do. Few out of every odd game will look pretty, at times the games will not be OK, yet on the off chance that they can pound calls attention to of that, granulate wins, they will win a cup, crush focuses then they will win the group. They will simply need to adjust the two sides. Regardless of whether the game isn't OK, they should apply crush and-in and out home." Pirates visit Chippa United at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium today (17h00) and get an opportunity to climb to second on the DStv Premiership log.
