Cape Town - Orlando Pirates' Senzo Meyiwa is confident but cautious ahead of his side's crunch MTN8 clash against SuperSport United.The Buccaneers goalkeeper revealed, on the club's official website, that playing United has always been a tough assignment for him but insisted that it was not only because of one man.
Senzo Meyiwa admits that playing against SuperSport United will be a real test for the team, as the Sea Robbers look to kick start their season in great fashion.
“It will be a good test for us,” said Meyiwa.
He said United’s former striker Mame Niang caused serious problems for his defence, “but it was not only about one player.”
“We know the feeling of being knocked out of this Cup and we also know the feeling of wining it.
“SuperSport is an organised team and even though they do not have Niang anymore, it should not be a reason for us to let our guards down.”
He continued: “In the previous seasons they pushed forward really nicely and made sure they had someone to finish up front. We have to forget about that and understand that they are not a one man team – they are very organised so, we have to play our normal game and try to score first.
“When we score first in Orlando we feel great – we want to score more but I also think we will have to defend better.”
The match on Saturday will kick-off at 20.15.
