Orlando Pirates will hope to finish off a tumultuous month of August on a better note when they take on Golden Arrows on Wednesday night.
Rhulani Mokwena’s outfit have had a month to forget, although it got off to the best possible start when they beat Bloemfontein Celtic 3-1 in the Premiership season opener on 3 August.
But then the wheels came off rather quickly for the Buccaneers. They went down 1-0 to Green Eagles in the Caf Champions League, which was followed by a 3-0 drubbing at the hands of SuperSport United in the league.
The big bombshell landed on Friday, 16 August, when Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic resigned under a cloud of secrecy, and a day before the MTN8 quarter-final against Highlands Park.
It was no surprise that they lost 1-0 to the Lions of the North in Mokwena’s first game in charge.
