Cape Town - Orlando Pirates striker Kermit Erasmus believes the club can advance to the next round of the CAF Confederations Cup, but only if they work together.

The Buccaneers are preparing for the return leg of their first-round tie away to Uganda Revenue Authority, and take with them a slender 2-1 lead after conceding an all-important away goal in the first leg in Soweto.

Erasmus, though, believes the side have what it takes to hold on to their advantage at the Mandela National Stadium in Kampala on 4 April.

"It is about working for each other, going the extra mile when one player can't and that means we will push each other to want to win," he told KickOff.

"It is also about making sure that we capitalise on the chances we create - that will ease the pressure.

"It is about being united and stick with one another until the end."

Pirates defender Happy Jele agrees with Erasmus, saying that teamwork is what helped them finish as runners up in the CAF Champions League in 2013.

"If we can work together as a team like we did in the Champions League we can go to the final," he said.
