Mokoena to solve Bucs striking problem? 21/04/04
Lebohang Mokoena is set to start for Orlando Pirates on Sunday when they face St. Michel of Seychelles in the second leg of their Caf Champions first round clash.

The 18-year old striker has been touted by coach Augusto Palacious as an answer to the Mighty Bucs goal drought.

The Sea Robbers were knocked out of the Absa Cup after being beaten 2-0 by a ten-man Birds team in the quarterfinal game on Sunday, and again their lack of finishing was highlighted.

"Our lack of good finishing is not new. We missed several opportunities to wrap the game up in Seychelles. Against Swallows we were punished and that has forced us to seriously look at our situation," Palacios told the Sowetan.

Palacious has turned his attention to the goal scoring department this week.

"I have dedicated this whole week to working on our finishing and have taken the decision to start with Lebohang against Seychelles. We have been holding back on throwing him into the deep end and on all the occasions we have brought him on as a substitute, he has proved the most effective up-front.

Mokoena scored twice against Matlama of Lesotho in the preliminary Champions League round.

"One of his strengths is his unbelievable pace," and Palacios also described him as "a very intelligent player."

Amabhakabhaka won the first-leg 3-2 in the Seychelles two weeks ago.
