Johannesburg - Ahead of the much anticipated Carling Black Label Cup clash against Kaizer Chiefs this weekend, Orlando Pirates' prolific striker Tendai Ndoro admits that only pride will be at stake as the giants of South African football battle in the 2016/17 season curtain raiser.

The Soweto perennial rivals will square-off in the sixth edition of the pre-season spectacle at the FNB Stadium on Saturday with kick-off scheduled at 15:00.

The Zimbabwean International forward hinted that his teammates are well aware that bragging rights would be at stake and they will all be looking to delight their loyal supporters.

“You know when you play for Pirates that it’s a must to beat Kaizer Chiefs,” said Ndoro.

“Everyone knows that we’d rather lose all the games but except to Chiefs, whether it’s a competitive game of friendly.

“Because we know that bragging rights for everyone associated with both clubs are always at stake.

“So a game between the two teams is always considered as the game of the year.”

Meanwhile, defender Happy Jele believes that the Buccaneers will sweep more accolades in the upcoming campaign and said that they intend to commence with the Carling Black Label.

“We want to win trophies in the next season as a team,” Jele hinted.

“And we intend to start with the Carlin Black Label Cup on Saturday to get acclimatised to winning trophies.

“I believe that we can bring that in to the team, it’s not a matter of pre-season games but a matter of doing it for the team and the supporters.

“We believe that we can do it.”
