Cape Town - Orlando Pirates striker Thamsanqa Gabuza insists a win is the only option for the Buccaneers in their Premiership encounter against Polokwane City on Tuesday.

Pirates go into the game winless in their last three outings in all competitions, losing to Bloemfontein Celtic and drawing against Black Aces in the league, while also falling to Zamalek in the CAF Confederations Cup.

And, Gabuza has now called on his team-mates to regroup and return to winning ways against Rise and Shine at the Peter Mokaba Stadium this week.

"For us, there is only one option and that is to win," he told Football411.

"The pressure to win from our fans is always there but our failure to win in our last two league games has made it worse.

"So we know that we cannot settle for anything less than three points tonight, knowing very well that Polokwane is a difficult team to play on any day.

"But we really need the win to improve our log position and build the momentum ahead of our CAF semi-final on Saturday."

Kick-off is at 19:30.
