Cape Town - Orlando Pirates defender Happy Jele says the Buccaneers know Kaizer Chiefs' strengths ahead of the Soweto Derby at the FNB Stadium on Saturday.

The Mayfair-based outfit will look to put a stop to Amakhosi's five-game unbeaten spell, and Jele believes that Muhsin Ertrugal's side have the know-how to do so.

"We know their strength. We know how to approach the game because we know how they play," he told reporters.  

"We have to work on their strength for us to win this game. Of course it's a derby and all we want is a win.

"We know this game us not just about three points but that what takes you up on the league log and we want to win today," he concluded.

Ertrugal, who was formerly the coach of Chiefs in two separate stints, is yet to taste defeat in the league campaign thus far.

The two sides face off at the FNB Stadium, with kick-off scheduled for 15:30.
