Cape Town - SuperSport United coach Stuart Baxter insists his side is fully aware of what to expect from Orlando Pirates, ahead of their Nedbank Cup final tie on Saturday.

The two sides played to a 2-2 draw on the final day of the season, and the former Kaizer Chiefs coach feels the teams were sizing each other up, but feels the Ke Yona final clash will be a totally different ball game.

"I think in the league game we were both studying each other because we were cautious that there was a cup final just seven days after that game," Baxter told Goal website.

"However on Saturday, it will be a different ball game as we will be going for the kill.

"We now know what to expect from Pirates just like they know what to expect from us.

"We have players who can take on the individual responsibility of helping the team win on Saturday but we are stronger playing as a team and that's what we are going to do.

"I think our strength will also be in going forward to attack where we can catch them off-guard and make sure we score those important goals to help us win the trophy.

"As I have been saying, it's important for us to finish the season with a trophy.

"Everyone at the club deserves something to celebrate for after a poor start to the season and I think this is the chance to do that," Baxter concluded.
