Cape Town - Oupa Manyisa admits that Bafana Bafana's players know they need to get a good result when they travel to Congo.

Ace, as he is affectionately known as, was instrumental in Orlando Pirates’ Africa Champions League Campaign last year and says that “although I am going back with the National team, nothing will be different.”

“We know the crowd in Congo - when we went there (with Orlando Pirates) we were well prepared for them,” said Manyisa to the Buccaneers website.

“Those guys play very well at home and their people make sure they support their team especially if they are doing well.”

“We know we have to go there and get a result. We must only think about getting a result there. We want a result and we must not care about anything else.

“It is not going to be easy but I think most of the guys here have played tough matches and we will be ready.”

Bafana will depart on Thursday afternoon for Point-Noire, the Republic of Congo's second largest city after its capital Brazzaville. The match will be played at the Stade Municipal.

They return to South Africa on Sunday, ahead of next week's return fixture against the Red Devils in Polokwane.

Bafana Bafana fixtures:

Saturday, October 11, Congo v SA (Pointe Noire) - 16:30

Wednesday, October 15, SA v Congo (Peter Mokaba Stadium) - 20:05
