Cape Town – Orlando Pirates coach Eric Tinkler says that the Buccaneers need a positive result against Bidvest Wits.

According to Soccer Laduma, Tinkler insists that following their Telkom Knockout victory against the University of Pretoria the pressure of delivering a good result will be on them.

“It's a big one against Wits. It comes immediately after our win over Tuks and people will expect another good result from the team.

“That kind of puts pressure on us but it also gives us the chance to continue fighting and winning. 

“We need to get a positive result from it. We know that Wits are not an easy team to play against at any given time but we have to make sure we win tonight.”

Kick-off is at 19:30 on Wednesday, October 21.
