Cape Town - SuperSport United midfielder Aubrey
Modiba is confident that Matsatsantsa are ready to face Orlando Pirates, but is
wary of the Soweto giants' midfield.
After the international break, Kaitano
Tembo's side will return to Premiership action against the Sea Robbers at
Orlando Stadium on Saturday.
The game will effectively be a rematch of
the MTN8 quarter-final at the same venue, which Matsatsantsa won on penalties.
"We are ready for Orlando Pirates and
the guys have been putting in a lot of hard work at training," Modiba, who
is comfortable on the wing or at full-back, told Soccer Laduma website
"We know that they are a very good
side with quality midfielders and they like to attack. We played them recently
and we know what to expect from them. We are ready to face them on any given
After beating Pirates in the MTN8,
SuperSport then saw off Kaizer Chiefs over two legs to make the final, where
they will face Cape Town City.
"It's going to be a different ball
game altogether," said Modiba of the clash scheduled for 29 September at Durban's
Moses Mabhida Stadium.
"They have brought in new players,
although they are still under the same coach. We are facing a Cape Town City
team that likes to keep the ball and they have pacey wingers, good strikers and
a very solid defence."
