The Orlando Pirates First Team players are due to report to training this morning to kick-start preparations for the New Year.
With the holiday season now over, it is time for the technical team to knuckle down to some serious business for the year ahead.
Head Coach Augusto Palacios and his charges are well aware of the challenge that lies ahead following a poor ending to 2016, with two back-to-back defeats at the hands of Maritzburg United and Bloemfontein Celtic respectively.
The Mighty Buccaneers have slumped to tenth place on the log table, seven points adrift log leaders SuperSport United.
The Buccaneers will kick-off the New Year with an away clash to Platinum Stars on February 8, 2017. Followed by a home clash against Bidvest Wits seven days later.
The league is currently in recess for the whole month to accommodate for the African Cup of Nations tournament which starts in five daysí time.
4 February: Bidvest Wits (Away)
8 February: Platinum Stars (Away)
15 February: Bidvest Wits (Home)
18 February: Cape Town City (Away)
25 February: Polokwane City (Home)
