Cape Town - Oupa Manyisa says that Orlando Pirates are hoping to take their CAF form into the PSL when they play their first league match against SuperSport United.

Pirates come into the game off a good 2-0 victory over Tunisian side, SC Sfaxien, in the CAF Confederation Cup but must now change their focus to domestic football.

After Pirates play SuperSport, they take on Chippa United seven days later in another league encounter, before returning to CAF action against AC Leopards five days later.

Manyisa tells Sport24 that no matter which tournament or game they play in they take those games seriously, and respect their opponents.

"SuperSport is a very good team," said Manyisa.

"They have a very good coach and we won't take this game lightly. 

"We are used to winning in Africa and we want to take that form into the league at home. 

"But we have to respect the teams we are playing at home starting to night against SuperSport United.”

Kick-off is at 19:30.
