Cape Town - Dove Wome says 'team work and team spirit' are key to Orlando Pirates' chances of beating Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday afternoon.

The match at the FNB Stadium will be Wome's first Soweto derby following his mid-season loan move from SuperSport United.

He says he'll be taking on board advice from some of his team-mates who have more experience in the country's biggest showdown.

"A few players like (Tendai) Ndoro have been telling me about how this game is important for the club and the supporters," the Togo international told KickOff.

"He has told me that though this game is big I must relax and play my normal football. There is nothing that has changed about the football, it is just the crowd. 

"This is my first derby and I am obviously very happy to be part of this game. I hope I get a chance to play. This game for me is emotional, it is good for us because maybe it is going to be our turning point, you never know. 

"I have always watched this derby on television so playing in front of that crowd will be emotional," he added.

Wome has scored twice since joining Bucs last month and has generally been a very positive addition to the team.

But he's not looking for personal glory on Saturday and says it will take a combined and cohesive effort to beat an in-form Amakhosi side.

"I need to work hard and work for the team. We just need to work as a collective to win this game, no matter who scores. The goal can come from anywhere but team work and team spirit is going to be key for us," he said.
