Vincent Pule assesses Orlando Pirates clash with Bidvest Wits


Pirates face a crunch top-of-the-table encounter at the Bidvest Stadium on Saturday afternoon, with a massive three points at stake for both sides in their respective title bids.

Coming up against his former teammates and coach, Pule says this will come as no advantage as Hunt is often volatile in his selection.

“I think with the Wits coach, you can’t predict who will play and who will not play, so we just have to play the way we usually play. I think that on its own will be an advantage for us,” Pule tells

“I think you can’t also predict how they will play, which formation and everything. We just have to play smart and focus on ourselves rather than on the opposition.

“So, if we play to our strength and how we know, I think we will overcome them.”

The 27-year-old, meanwhile, add that the league title is now within touching distance and Bucs will therefore need to sweep aside any and every opposition in front of them in the remaining six matches. 

“We have to do well, because looking at the log now, we stand a good chance of winning the league, so every team we that comes in front of us, we have to make sure we take maximum points.”

Kick-off is scheduled for 15h00.
