To Win (90mins)
FS Stars 37/10 
Draw 23/10
Pirates 15/20

Pirates struggled at home to high-flying Sundowns on Saturday and without much attacking prowess, despite new signing Helder Pelembe making a start, it took just a single goal from Hlompho Kekana to roll them over.

What a strike it was though. Similarly, Stars suffered defeat at the hands of Dikwena, albeit surviving for 89 minutes without conceding.

Despite almost hanging on for a point, they remain tied with Arrows in last spot.

You can’t bet against a much stronger Bucs squad in this fixture.

Bethlehem isn’t exactly the most glamourous destination to travel to midweek, but Eric Tinkler will have to get his charges in place to make sure Pirates leave with three points.

Nothing less will suffice at this stage, and I’m confident this will happen.

Betting Prediction: PIRATES 15/20
Don’t go crazy with goals markets, back the away side at 15/20.
