Cape Town - Orlando Pirates recruit Tshepo Gumede is confident that the Buccaneers will secure passage to the next round of the CAF Confederation Cup, when they play against the Uganda Revenue Authority in Kampala on Saturday.

Pirates currently have a 2-1 lead, heading into the second leg of this fixture and while the odds appear to be in their favour at this juncture, there is still the small matter of an away goal which the Uganda Revenue Authority scored in the first leg. Gumede refuses to be deterred by this though.

"I know the guys will do well in Uganda, it's a little bit disappointing that I won't be joining them but the opportunity will come again," Gumede told Soccer Laduma.

"I have been preparing with the squad which will be travelling and I can tell you the squad heading to Uganda is well prepared," added Gumede, who missed the CAF deadline when he signed for Pirates during the January transfer window.

Since Gumede moved to Soweto earlier this year, he has not featured prominently in their Premiership campaign at all.

However, he has still set himself high targets for his tenure at the club and remains confident that those objectives will be realised sooner, rather than later.

"We are targeting Champions League football qualification, something I personally want to be involved in. So far I'm happy with progression thus far. I look to build and become a regular in the team.”
