Kaizer Chiefs’ Musona is still dangerous – Krol

2011-02-22 15:50

Orlando Pirates coach Rudi Krol says Knowledge Musona is still a “dangerous striker” despite the Kaizer Chiefs marksman having scored twice in Amakhosi’s nine matches in the new year.

The Zimbabwean international had gone four games without a goal before he broke his dry run with a penalty in Amakhosi’s 2-2 draw against Santos last weekend.

“He is one of the dangerous strikers in the PSL and there is no doubt about that,” Krol conceded, speaking ahead of his side’s top-of-the table clash against rivals Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday.

The epic Absa Premiership clash is dubbed the “Golden Derby” because Amakhosi are hosting the second round Absa Premiership fixture at FNB Stadium. Chiefs coach Vladimir Vermezovic described the tie as “something special”. 

“This is another big game for us and there is always something special about our games against Pirates. We beat them twice already and we are hoping for another win.”Chiefs won the first-round clash 3-1. 

Saturday’s clash comes at the time when Pirates and Chiefs are heading the PSL log at one and two respectively and this fixture is seen as a potential championship decider with nine games remaining before the conclusion of the 2010/11 season.

Only two points separate the two Soweto powerhouses, with third-placed Ajax Cape Town equal with Pirates on 43 points.

By today, the ticket sales had surpassed the 72 000-mark and the cheapest (R40) were sold out while the ones priced at R150 were still available, according to Chiefs PR and marketing company Jake Productions.

The seating capacity of the 2010 Fifa World Cup final venue is 90 000.Meanwhile, the stadium management were busy conditioning the pitch following the U2 concert last Sunday.
