Rangers vs Pirates fixture postponed 17/08/04
The Manning Rangers and Orlando Pirates fixture scheduled for Wednesday August 18 has been postponed until September 8.

The fixture was postponed due to Pirates' participation in the Confederations Cup, despite the Buccaneers failing to honour their fixture in Cameroon against Sable de Batie, who have since progressed to the next round, last Sunday.

"The match was postponed way before the announcement that our opponents have advanced to the group stages of the competition as a result of our failure to travel to the west African country," the club's corporate affairs manager Mickey Modisane told the Pirates website.

"This now means our next fixture will be against Wits University in the Supa 8 at Orkney in Potchefstroom on Sunday. And since this is a knock-out competition, we have everything to play for."

Modisane also took the opportunity to clear up recent reports claiming that the Buccaneers have been expelled from the Confederation of African Football (CAF) competitions.

"Yes, Sable de Batie of Cameroon has progressed to the group stages of the Confederations Cup after we failed to honour the second leg fixture, but this does not mean Orlando Pirates has been expelled," he said.

"CAF's emergency committee will have a meeting on September 28 to deliberate around the issue. So chances are, we will still be taking part in the CAF competition sooner than most people think."
