Cape Town - Orlando Pirates legend Dumisa Ngobe believes the Buccaneers can overcome testing conditions in Tunisia this weekend to lay their hands on the CAF Confederation Cup trophy.
Pirates are set to face Tunisia's Etoile Sportive du Sahel at the Stade Olympique de Sousse on Sunday in the second leg of the 2015 CAF Confederation Cup final, the teams having played to a 1-1 draw in Soweto last weekend.
Apart from the disadvantage of having conceded an away goal, the Pirates players will also have to show nerves of steel and will have their character seriously tested.
However, Ngobe, who helped the Buccaneers lift the CAF Champions League trophy in 1995, feels that the current Pirates squad possesses enough character to get the job done on Sunday.
"I don't think Pirates will be unsettled because that's off the field, this assignment needs strong minded players," he told Africanfootball website.
"I know that the boys have character and the advantage is that Sahel are also concerned about it (bomb) because they'll be on the same field.
"I think we also faced that in in Liberia in 1995 where we ended up camping in a military base - this happens in Africa.
"We're fully behind the guys and they'll make us proud I don't doubt that."
Kick-off is at 16:00 (SA Time).
