Cape Town - SuperSport United captain Clayton Daniels expects a pulsating encounter against Orlando Pirates after the sides were drawn to face each other in the last 16 of the Nedbank Cup.

Matsatsantsa earned their place in Thursday's draw after seeing off Polokwane City 4-1 on Wednesday, and have since been rewarded with a home tie against the defending champions, who dispatched Tornado FC 4-0 at the weekend.
And, speaking to Vodacom Football, Daniels believes the match will live up to all its billing, given the two sides' impressive form of late.
“I'm sure it will be an exciting game and I'm glad that we are playing home,” said the United skipper.
“We are playing good football now and Pirates are also enjoying fine form; for me it will be a difficult encounter as Pirates made a few signings.
"We also made good signings such as Kingston Nkhatha and Jeremy Brockie, who are scoring the goals. They are settling well and are quickly complimenting each other up front.”
SuperSport will be under pressure as Pirates are also seeking to defend their title and will not make matters easy for Gordon Igesund's men, although Daniels insists there is pressure in each an every match.
"There's always pressure, it doesn't matter in what game you play, it's always important for us to look at our goals which are going all the way in this competition," Daniels said.
"For us it's a good draw - we know Pirates and they know about us; we just need to maintain at the back and not to concede - as long as the game goes on, the more opportunities we get to score. There are going to be goals with the quality side we have."
