Cape Town - Orlando Pirates captain Oupa Manyisa has urged his team-mates to stop the rot and return to their best against Polokwane City on Tuesday.
The Buccaneers are looking to get back to winning ways, having gone their last three games without victory, most recently drawing 1-1 against Mpumalanga Black Aces at the Orlando Stadium after successive defeats, against Bloemfontein Celtic and Zamalek.
The Sea Robbers will also be desperately in need of a morale booster ahead of their CAF Confederations Cup semi-final first-leg at home against Al-Ahly on Saturday.
"It won't be easy. It has never been easy but we have to keep on fighting. We are used to this, playing so many games within a short space of time," Manyisa told Soccer Laduma.
"We just have to adjust and make sure we collect maximum points. City are a good side and playing at home gives them motivation to go out and win but we are ready for them.
"We have forgotten about the Friday game against Aces and our focus is on (Tuesday's) match against Polokwane City."
Kick-off is at 19:30.
