Cape Town - Orlando Pirates continue to have fixture congestion as they are playing in the CAF Confederation Cup as well as in the local league. 

On Tuesday, August 18 Pirates host Chippa United at the Orlando Stadium and captain Oupa Manyisa says that no matter how many games they play in a week they need to continue working hard.

He says that the players know the importance of each and every game that they play and they put in 100% into every game they play.

"We are professionals and football is our job so we just have to keep on working hard every time we walk into the field of play," the Bafana Bafana midfielder said.

"Tomorrow we are playing against Chippa United and we have seen how they have started the season. 

"We won't undermine them as they are a good team.

"We will play to our best ability and make sure we correct three points in our first home game."

Kick-off is at 19:30.
