Dynamos And Bucs In Dire Need Of Win 19/09/03
Orlando Pirates travel to Giyani to face Dynamos for what is expected to be a arduous task for the reigning Castle Premiership Champions.

Pirates Domination
Last season the Bucs beat Dynamos home and away and set themselves up for the Castle Premiership title for the second time in three years. The start to this season's Premier Soccer League has seen them win only once, while the Limpopo side are yet to register a win.

Attacking Options
Steve Lekoelea, Benedict Vilakazi and Joseph Makhanya are all attacking players and with the acquisition of Daniel 'Sailor' Tshabalala their midfield has plenty of strength. Pirates have scored only twice in five games and look a shadow of themselves. Dynamos have signed influential Alex Bapela, Adam Ndlovu and Josias Macamo to strengthen their offense, so a football foray is expected, but from who?

Under Pressure
Jacob Sakala and Roy Barreto both need for their teams to win, although the latter would be more desperate for the points as the "Ghost", as the Pirates fans are known, demand nothing but a win. Sakala's team is lagging in 15th place, which is not a good position for a team with so much promise and support in the Limpopo province.

Probable line-ups:
Dynamos:
Kitenge, Mtshali, Chabalala, Muinga, Carelse, Motshumi, Bapela, Ndou, Seroba, Macamao, Ndlovu

Pirates: Tlale, Musasa, Khomane, Tlhomelang, Netshodwe, Lekoelea, Tshabalala, Makhanya, Vilakazi, Kauleza, Manhenze,

Players To Watch:
Dynamos
: Joel Seroba has been recently called up to Bafana Bafana and has a knack for scoring vital goals. Seroba's experience is important to the team as they have to fight for their points against a desperate Pirates team tomorrow.

Pirates: Steve Lekoelea seems to getting back to his old ways, on the pitch that is. The talented Steve has forced his way into a Pirates team after sitting on the bench and coming on as a sub to set-up and score beautiful goals. Chippa will be a handful for Dynamos and any team in the PSL - expect fireworks from this talented playmaker.

Last Results
23 November 2002: Pirates 2 - 0 Dynamos   (Orlando Stadium)

12 April 2003: Dynamos 0 - 1 Pirates   (Giyani Stadium)
