Cape Town - Orlando
Pirates midfielder Oupa Manyisa refuses to get ahead of himself, despite his
club winning the first leg of the CAF Confederation Cup fixture against the
Uganda Revenue Authority.

What remains a concern for Pirates at this juncture is that
the team will play the next leg of this match away from home, having already
conceded an away goal at the Orlando Stadium last weekend.
"We know how important playing in Africa is and we are
ready to go there and get a good result to progress to the next round,"
said a confident Manyisa.
The South Africa international did highlight the fact that
there were other, more immediate concerns for the team at this juncture,
suggesting that Pirates would not dwell on the first-leg result for longer than
is absolutely necessary.
“We will go to Uganda to finish it off when that time comes.
“For now we have to concentrate on other tournaments that we
are playing in like the league at home,” added the ever pragmatic Manyisa.
The next assignment for Pirates will be a Premiership
fixture against Mpumalanga Black Aces on Wednesday - a fixture which is rather
critical on the context of the league season.
Kick-off is at 19:30.
