2014 World Cup: Orlando Pirates coach backs Fatau Dauda to shine against Black Aces

Orlando Pirates coach Vladimir Vermezovic believes Fatau Dauda is a quality replacement for suspended Senzo Meyiwa against Mpumalanga Black Aces on Wednesday.

Meyiwa collected his fourth booking during their 1-0 win over Moroka Swallows on Saturday night for time-wasting.

According to the PSL rules, the goalkeeper will serve one-match ban.

Vermezovic, appointed recently, will rely on Dauda for the tough assignment against the in-form side at Orlando Stadium on Wednesday night.

“We have big squad and Dauda is very much ready for action for the game against Aces,” said Vermezovic.

Dauda has only played twice for Pirates this season and will be pleased to get another taste of action on Wednesday.

He needs more game time to sharpen him for the 2014 World Cup finals.

    He's keeping because the other keeper is suspended. If not, dude will be warming the bench. And no doubt this will be his last match of the season. 5 goals will be conceeded. God bless Kwarasey!! Bless

    Papadinho why? I can't stop laughing. This is a bench warming goal keeper who cannot dispose off a keeper in a mediocre league yet he has booked his place in the black stars to Brazil. It's a big joke. Nepotism, favouratism, bribery in the highest order.
