Cape Town - Orlando Pirates caretaker coach Augusto Palacios had no complaints about the draw against SuperSport United for the Telkom Knockout semi-final.
The Buccaneers will still be feeling the sting of their 6-1 drubbing at the hands of Matsatsantsa just last week in the Premiership.
The humiliating loss led to the resignation of Turkish coach Muhsin Ertugral after just four months with the club and Palacios' promotion.
Pirates advanced to the last four of the Telkom Knockout with a 2-1 win over Highlands Park in the quarterfinal on Saturday.
"A cup game is a cup game. We cannot ask for any team to play as all the teams in the semi-finals are tough," Palacios told KickOff.
"We are not going to play the game against SuperSport for revenge, but to win and get to the final. Revenge is not something on the mind. We will work hard and prepare well to make sure we don't repeat our past mistakes."
The semi-finals are scheduled to take place on the weekend of the 26/27 of November with the venues yet to be announced.
The other cup-tie sees Free State Stars up against Cape Town City after they eliminated Kaizer Chiefs and Baroka FC respectively.
