Pirates' Jali oozes confidence

Johannesburg - Orlando Pirates midfielder Andile Jali says he is confident of wrenching the three points away from Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday.

The Buccaneers' central midfielder will return to action for the Soweto derby this weekend after he was forced to sit out Pirates' demoralising 3-0 loss to strugglers Santos in midweek.

That result saw the Sea Robbers remain below Chiefs in the standings, although only goal difference separates the juggernauts of South African football.

"A derby for me is more than just the 22 players in the field - it is about the whole country, so I'm ready to do everything I can to win this one for all the Pirates fans," Jali told Football411.com.

"Forget about the loss to Santos, because this is a different ball game this time. We want to win and we will win.

"People are talking a lot about us losing to Santos, but they forget that we lost 3-0 to Ajax Cape Town last season and everyone wrote us off but we went on to win the league. So what I'm trying to say is whoever is writing us off ahead of the derby is doing so at their own peril.

"We know what's at stake for this match," Jali concluded.
