Orlando Pirates striker Lehlohonolo Majoro is expecting a tough clash against bottom-of-the-table AmaZulu at Moses Mabhida Stadium on Wednesday at 7.30pm.

“AmaZulu are a good side with a proud history. They are not a side to be undermined because they can turn it on at any time and they are capable of playing well,” Majoro told the official Pirates website.

“Teams that are in the bottom half of the log always pose a danger because they will do anything to survive and move away from relegation. We have also struggled to break them down previously, so we owe it to ourselves and our supporters to start with a bang and take all three points.

“They are desperately looking for points right now which makes them dangerous, so I don’t think it matters whether you play them home or away.”

Major, as Majoro is affectionately known by Bucs fans, said he was expecting an open game against Usuthu.

“They will attack. They have to because it may be the only way that they can press other teams and stake a claim for staying in the Premiership. I therefore suspect it will an open game.

“Most teams park the bus against Pirates and that might be a tactic they adopt should they score first, which is understandable, but whether the bus is there or not, we have a game plan and we know what needs to be done in order to secure a vital win.”

The teams played to a 1-1 draw in the first round of the season at Orlando Stadium in August last year.
