They are intelligent on the ball and in finding spaces‚ and in combinations with their teammates. And anyone who initially mocked Bucs for hiring Stephane Adam as finishing coach is starting to see the results especially in these two players.
3. Augustine Mulenga and Justin Shonga on the wings
At the moment they are being overshadowed in the scoring charts by their wingers outside of them‚ but expect that to change once these two find their stride together.
A fearsome combination already for two years for Zambia‚ Mulenga and Shonga have had some teething problems in the playing system in black and white. Shonga‚ especially‚ missed chances‚ but is improving on that game by game‚ and is deadly from set pieces.
They compliment each other excellently in playing style. Mulenga‚ the pacy boar‚ bulldozes into the box. Shonga is lithe and intelligent around the edges of the area.
4. Xola Mlambo and Musa Nyatama in central midfield
Ben Motswari appears still doubtful injured‚ but could Pirates have a better replacement for him than last season’s club player of the season Nyatama.
Nyatama has perfected the deep-lying playmaker role to be one of the best exponents of it in the PSL. Mlambo has been in the sort of form that has many confused at his continued Bafana Bafana absence.
