Cape Town - Orlando Pirates pre-season preparations are on track after they recorded a 4-0 victory in a friendly match against TS Sporting this past weekend.

Pirates are in Rustenburg in the North West preparing for what is a campaign in which the Sea Robbers will be expected to challenge for all trophies on offer.

Reports suggest that after the camp in their current location, they could travel to Cape Town to face Cape Town City, SuperSport United, Highlands Park and Chippa United.

Nonetheless, Pirates are well underway after they thrashed National First Division outfit Sporting 4-0.

The goals were scored via a brace from Luvuyo Memela as well as a single goal-a-piece from Kabelo Dlamini and Vincent Pule.

Bucs' official website said: "The First Team has been hard at work as the Technical Team readies them for the start of a gruelling 2019/20 campaign.

"Fitness and Tactical work has been the main priority for the Brains Trust of Micho Sredojevic, Rhulani Mokwena and Fadlu Davids over the past six days in camp in Rustenburg. However, all this means nothing without testing the machinery against other opposition."

"Pirates have played one friendly match so far in this pre-season and this was against National First Division outfit TS Sporting over this past weekend. The Buccaneers registered a commanding 4-0 victory on the day with goals coming from Vincent Pule, a Luvuyo Memela brace, and the final goal from Kabelo Dlamini."
