Orlando Pirates coach Micho Sredojevic is expecting Platinum Stars to come out with guns blazing when the teams meet in an Absa Premiership encounter at the Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace on Saturday.

Sredojevic and his Bucs charges are yet to lose a game this year after registering two wins and a draw, while Stars have lost their opening three games of the year.

“It is a known fact that teams play their best football when playing against the likes of Orlando Pirates and therefore their current form will not be a factor. We are rather making preparations like we would for any other game. We expect a tough encounter from a tough opponent and that is our approach to this match,” said Sredojevic.

Dikwena are rooted at the bottom of the league standings with 15 points, while Bucs are on position six with 27 points after 18 rounds of games by both teams.
