Orlando Pirates defender Abbubaker Mobara says he feels anxious about playing against his former club Ajax Cape Town for the first time since his departure in the recent transfer window when the two sides meet for a league encounter at the Cape Town Stadium on Tuesday night.

“Obviously it will be a different feeling and very difficult at the same time. I have played with those players most of my football career, if not all my career,” Mobara was quoted on the PSL website.

“And now to play against them it will be strange but in football such things happen, and I have to focus on my duties at Pirates because that’s where I am now.”

The Buccaneers will be looking for their second league win after beating Golden Arrows 3-1 in their opening match this campaign, while the Urban Warriors will be aiming for their first three points after being held to a 1-1 draw by new boys, Baroka FC in their first game of the season.
