Pirates are over MTN8 finals - Bacela


Orlando Pirates striker, Lennox Bacela, has said that his team has moved on from the MTN8 Finals loss against Kaizer Chiefs, as they are currently preparing for the first round of the Telkom Knockout.

The Amakosi beat the Buccaneers 1-0, at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban on September 12th, after Pirates missed many opportunities to score goals during the game.

Bacela has said that his team, who are currently sitting fifth on the Premier Soccer League log, is looking forward to the Telkom Knockout clash against Polokwane City.

"We are professionals and are looking forward at new challenges," Bacela told Soccer Laduma.

"In football there are wins and losses and we understand that and we try to collect as many wins as possible. We continue fighting."

The match will take place at the Orlando Stadium in Johannesburg on Sunday afternoon, with Pirates looking for a win after losing to Platinum Stars in the final game of the competition last season. It will also be the first time first competitive game between the Buccaneers and City.
