Cape Town - Newly-signed attacking midfielder Dove Wome says he is embracing the challenge of being part of the squad at Orlando Pirates.

The Togo international joined the Buccaneers from SuperSport United on loan until the end of the season, with the option to make his stay permanent.

Wome, who made his Pirates debut in the 2-1 defeat to Bidvest Wits last week, scored his first goal for the Soweto giants in a hard-fought 2-2 draw against Cape Town City on Saturday at Cape Town Stadium.

"I'm currently on a loan deal here until the end of the season but, one can't rule a possibility of a permanent stay once the current loan spell ends in June, who knows," the 25-year-old told Vodacom Soccer.

"But, honestly Pirates is a big team with big support base, and it's every PSL player's dream to play for a Big-Three team like Pirates, so I too.

"Yes, I felt good after scoring my first goal in only my second start in the team's starting line-up, but I know that (scoring) doesn't mean I have arrived. It has just come as a motivational factor to me to work even harder.

"Well, obviously every new coach comes with his own system and tactics, but hard word and commitment will be a key to any player in the team to impress the new technical team."

Bucs will battle it out with Polokwane City under the guidance of a newly-appointed Swedish coach Kjell Jonevret at Orlando Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
