Cape Town - Orlando Pirates legend Bruce Ramokadi wants Thamsanqa Gabuza to bring his international goal-scoring form into the CAF Confederation Cup final.

The Buccaneers take on Tunisian club Etoile du Sahel over two legs on 21 and 27 November to decide this season's champion, and Ramokadi believes Gabuza could prove to be the difference if he is able to show the same kind of form he's displayed for Bafana Bafana.

"With the goal-scoring form he has shown for Bafana he must convert that to Pirates in this crucial game because this is what they will need against Etoile," Ramokadi told Goal website.

"Rakhale, Masuku and Erasmus, all of them, they must combine to help the team because as you know this is a team sport not an individual sport, so all of them they must work together to accomplish the result on the day.

"They have got a big chance of winning especially at home, you know. They have got a big chance to win at home with the quality they have in the team.

"The only thing is that they should not concede, if they can do that it will help them a lot in the return-leg.

"That's very important not to concede at home," he concluded.
