Cape Town - SuperSport United marksman Bradley Grobler says he expects to face an Orlando Pirates side looking to play possession football on Saturday night in Soweto.

The two teams will meet for the second time this season, when they square up in a league encounter at the Orlando Stadium on Saturday night.

The previous encounter, an MTN8 quarter-final, ended 2-2 before SuperSport won on penalties.

Grobler believes however that Bucs have progressed since then and is expecting an even tougher challenge this time around.

"It will be a difficult match against a good team. I think they have changed their style of play since we last played them," Grobler told Goal.

"They tend to play ball possession football now and they did very well against Black Leopards," he said.

With three goals in his last two matches for Matsatsantsa, Grobler, who missed the second half of last season through injury, is keen to keep the momentum going in front of goal.

"Well, as a striker once you score your first goal of the season it boosts your confidence, and you become hungry for goals," the Bafana striker explained.

"At the moment I am confident and I will be hoping to score, and help the team win."

SuperSport head into Saturday's match in third spot on the table, one position and two points above the Sea Robbers.
