Cape Town - SuperSport United defender Sibusiso Khumalo says that they know that playing a team like Orlando Pirates won't be easy but they want the three points.

Last week SuperSport were knocked out of the MTN8 by Bidvest Wits and on Tuesday, August 11 they start the league title race with a home game against Orlando Pirates at the Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane.

Khumalo said Pirates have been playing throughout the break and are a well oiled machine.

"Pirates didn't have a break as they were playing in Africa," the former Mamelodi Sundowns defender told Sport24.

"That gives them the chance to be a well balanced team as they have been playing together for a long time now.

"They will not be easy to beat but we want the three points tonight and we will make sure we score goals to win the game."

Kick-off is at 19:30.
