According to Soccer Laduma, Manyisa revealed that the past weekend the club gave all the players a break ahead of their important clash.

Manyisa confirms that as of Monday, May 25th all the players reported for training with their focus on next week Saturday, June 6.

Pirates secured a 2-0 victory in Mali during the first-leg and now hope to either maintain or build on that lead.

“We are working hard,” said Manyisa.

“We have to keep on working hard because there is no room for mistakes as we want to reach the group stages in the CAF Confederation Cup.

“We know we won away but they will come here and want to change that result and for us we have to maintain our lead and win at home.”
