    With the age-old foes preparing to clash once more, several players on both sides dream of experiencing their first taste of the famous derby’s intense atmosphere.

    Kaizer Chiefs’ interim coach Cavin Johnson has embraced favorites status for Saturday’s derby, aiming to continue Chiefs’ five-match winning league streak over Pirates.

    Citing home advantage at “the calabash” FNB Stadium, Johnson stated Chiefs should automatically be tagged as favorites. He is intent on beating Pirates to honor club founder Kaizer Motaung after his South African Hall of Fame induction.

    Johnson likened Motaung to presidents for building the club’s facilities from scratch, making him hugely credited in South African soccer. Victory on Saturday would be a fitting tribute to Motaung’s legacy.
