Lekgwathi: Orlando Pirates defence must keep an eye on Majoro

Majoro sealed victory for AmaKhosi with a controversial strike the last time these two giants met, and Lekgwathi says they will have to keep an eye on him

Orlando Pirates captain Lucky Lekgwathi has confessed to Goal that their defence always plan well in advance to try and stop Kaizer Chiefs striker Lehlohonolo Majoro.

Majoro has made it a habit to score against Pirates from when he was with AmaZulu in his first PSL season. He has scored two goals in the last two games against the Sea Robbers, and Lekgwathi admits that he is a dangerous player.

“I think Majoro is a good striker. Whenever you leave him and forget about him then he scores, but I always tell my teammates that they must keep an eye on him,” Lekgwathi told Goal.

The Chiefs forward scored a controversial goal during the Carling Black Label Cup against Pirates last month, but Lekgwathi says they will also be keeping an eye on Knowledge Musona and Bernard Parker.

“However, we cannot put our focus on him alone, because there are players like Musona and Parker who are also capable of scoring goals. So, we need to keep an eye on them too,” he added.

The two Soweto giants face each other in the first leg of the MTN 8 semi-final at the FNB Stadium this afternoon [Saturday] with the second leg scheduled for September 24 at the Orlando Stadium.
