Cape Town - Thandani ‘Bibo’ Ntshumayelo says Orlando Pirates will focus on improving their own game and not that of their unknown opponents as they prepare for their CAF Confederations encounter against Uganda Revenue Authority.

According to the club's official website, Bibo says that despite not knowing their opponents very well they just need to continue creating chances.

“I think luckily enough during the Champions League we played a lot of games with teams we knew nothing about and the focus, as I said before, was on ourselves and how we want to play and score goals.

“Thereafter we can expand our preparations by focusing on the other team, because we would have had a chance to see them in the first leg.”

“The objective for us is to create goal scoring opportunities and obviously make them count and make sure that we don’t concede.

“I think that will put more pressure on them. We are playing at home in front of our supporters, our biggest motivation, and that spurs us on to do better.

“It’s not just about the players, or the supporters, it’s about a much bigger cause; it’s about doing duty for your country, and nothing can be more motivating than that.”

The match is scheduled to take place at the Orlando Stadium on Saturday, March 14.

Kick-off is at 17:00.
