Cape Town - Orlando Pirates coach Eric Tinkler is expecting nothing less than a clean sheet when his side face CF Mounana in the second leg of their CAF Confederations Cup second-round clash on Saturday.
The Buccaneers welcome their Gabonese opponents to the Orlando Stadium this weekend with the scores level at 2-2 from the reverse fixture, giving the Soweto giants the advantage on away goals.
That means Pirates need only a goalless draw to progress to the next round, and while Tinkler is determined to at least keep Mounana at bay over the 90 minutes, he still expects his side to find the back of the opposition net during the encounter.
"We need to take advantage of the fact that we scored those vital two away goals by not conceding at home," he told his club's official website.
"It is vital that we get ourselves an early goal because that will obviously put them under pressure which means they will have to go in search for a third goal and that is a scenario we will look to exploit.
"It is very important that we stay disciplined in defence, ensure we don't concede and when we do have possession of the ball we must make sure that we capitalise and score goals.
"If we can get two early goals it will make the match more comfortable and we can move into the next round of the competition."
