Johannesburg - Helder Pelembe says Orlando Pirates are in a state of experimentation with Vladimir Vermezovic in preparation for next season.

According to the club's official website, Pelembe is determined to scale new heights next season.

Since his arrival to the Buccaneers, the Mozambican international has made an immediate impact, scoring three goals along the way and admits he has found it easy to settle in at Mayfair.

"I am okay here although I have not started many games," he said.

"You can see that the coach is trying to sort out the striking department trying all the strikers and I think only from next season we will be ready to play better.

"I’m enjoying the experience here; the fans have been great to me and I am trying hard to live up to their expectations.

"I am a National team player in my country and playing for a big team like Pirates is an honour; I know that for strikers, we are judged on being consistent, that is why I am in and out of the team, but i am still new here, so, next season I will start from the beginning just like everyone.

"It is just a matter of time..."

Although Pirates' have failed to flatter in the league this season, the 26-year-old striker is adamant the Sea Robbers will deliver a professional performance in their next league outing against Platinum Stars.

"It is a home game and we will fight.

"This game is like a final and all of us will go to it with more responsibility."
