Cape Town - Thandani Ntshumayelo admits Orlando Pirates only have themselves to blame following Saturday's 1-1 home draw against Etoile du Sahel in the first-leg of the 2015 CAF Confederation Cup final.

The Buccaneers had opened the scoring at the Orlando Stadium through Thamsanqa Gabuza's powerful strike after 37 minutes, but let their opponents back into the tie in the final four minutes as Ammar Jemal struck the equaliser.

The result means Pirates now head to Tunisia for the return leg trailing on the away goals rule, leaving it all to do for the South African juggernauts.

"The first thought that came to my mind when the referee ended the game is that now when we go to Tunisia we have to work extra hard," Ntshumayelo said.

"It's going to be difficult for us. We made it difficult for ourselves by conceding a silly goal but we have the belief that we can go there and do it.

"We will be calm now, report to training on Monday and work on what we need to do when we get there so that we can return with the trophy."
