Orlando Pirates skipper Edelbert Dinha says, that despite their recent lack of form, the Buccaneers are still confident of beating Chiefs and going on to win the title.
The 32-year-old skipper has made the midfield holding role his own this season and his vast experience is certain to play a vital part in calming down the nerves of some of the younger Bucs stars.
Although the youthfulness of the Bucs side has been seen as one of their strengths this season, with the pressure starting to build on the team, a few experienced heads will certainly be needed out on the park on Saturday.
"Most of them (the young players) have played in one or two Soweto derbies," Dinha told the Cape Times. "But the older players do look to put their arms around their shoulders if they appear to anxious during the build-up," explained the former Ajax man.
Recent poor results have lead to people assuming that the Sea Robbers, who have been top of the log for almost the entire season, are about to choke, but the Zimbabwean-born Dinha denies this.
"Football teams around the world go through a bad patch at some time of the season. Its unfortunate that we are going through ours at this crucial time, but we believe we can beat Chiefs and go on to win the championship."
