Cape Town - Orlando Pirates interim coach Rulani Mokwena says it is difficult to plan for a team like Chippa United but remains confident that the Buccaneers will get a positive result on Saturday.

The Soweto giants take on the Chilli Boys with Mokwena looking to taste victory for the first time in six games.

Chippa have not yet won in their four league games so far in the current campaign, playing to three draws, but Mokwena is wary of his opponents.

Mokwena said: "Chippa are a difficult team to analyse. There are two key thumbprints.

"There is still the Dan Malesela approach, which is of patient build-up and possession retention.

"And there's the [Clinton] Larsen approach. But we've done our homework, we know about the influences of Kurt Lentjies, Meshack Maphangule, [Andile] Mbenyane playing behind Lerato Manzini."

Kick-off is at 15:00 on Saturday.
