Cape Town - Steve Komphela feels that it is a bit unfortunate that Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates are facing one another at the beginning stages of the Nedbank Cup.

According to Orlando Pirates official Twitter account, Komphela says that they have prepared well for the looming encounter at the FNB Stadium.

"Meeting in the last 32 is unfortunate because it's a tough start. It would have been nice to meet in the semis,” said Komphela.

"We have prepared well and we'll finish tomorrow. But it's a derby; one must die & Chiefs wants to proceed"

"It's a derby yes, but more importantly a knockout match. Pirates is our knockout opposition. We have to approach this game as so"

"There'll be 70 000 people there to see good football. Whether the win comes in 90 mins, ET or pens, the result must be there"

"Chiefs fans want to see us win & that is what I hope to see on the day"

Kick-off is at 15:00 on Saturday, March 5.
