Khama Billiat It goes without saying that the Zimbabwean international will require some special attention from the Pirates defence. Khama Billiat has found the net in this fixture before and is always a threat to whoever he comes up against.
Samir Nurkovic: Serbian striker, Samir Nurkovic will be turning up for his first competitive Soweto Derby, having had a run against the Buccaneers in pre-season. Still relatively new to South African football, he arrived with a proven goal-scoring pedigree and did not take long to hit his stride in his new surroundings.
Nurkovic’s’ main strength be his aerial prowess. And judging by how he was utilised in the recent league match against Sundowns, Nurkovic will serve as his sides’ focal point in his teams’ initial move on the counter with a Manyama playing to him from deep and Nurcovic flicking on (or passing) to Billiat.
