Cape Town – Orlando Pirates striker Kermit Erasmus reveals that they intend take the game to Al Ahly rather than defending.

The Sowetan giants are in Egypt for the CAF Confederation Cup semi-final second leg as they look to secure a place in the final after winning Al Ahly 1-0 last week in Orlando.

“This is a semi-final second-leg and obviously it will be a tough game, but we have to go there and score,” he said.

“And it would be great if we could score early because that would unsettle them and put them under pressure.

“We won't be thinking of defending but rather attack through the game, so that we don't give then chances to attack us.

“But the most important thing is for us to score in the away game," Erasmus concluded.

Kick-off is at 20:30 on Sunday, October 4.
