Cape Town - Chippa United coach Roger Sikhakhane insists his side will be gunning for maximum points when they lock horns with Orlando Pirates.

The Chilli Boys travel to Orlando Stadium on the back of an encouraging 0-0 draw with defending Absa Premiership champions Kaizer Chiefs in their season opener at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.

Sikhakhane was quick to point out that he always sets up his team to win, saying their approach to Tuesday's match will not change.

"We are not worried about any other team we play against in the league, because we play in the same league," Sikhakhane said.

"For us it is to prepare our team, not to change our plans because we are playing against Pirates." 

He added: "When I prepare my team I don't plan for them to draw. I plan for [them to] get maximum points. We are ready and hope everything will go according to plan.

"This is a new season. Pirates has a good quality team. It won't be an easy game, but we will plan around them."
