Johannesburg - Orlando Pirates midfielder Sifiso Myeni believes they are more hungry than Wits to lift the Nedbank Cup title.

The two teams clash at the Moses Mabhiba Stadium in Durban on Saturday afternoon to bring the curtain down on the 2013/14 domestic season.

“I think we want this trophy more than Wits," Myeni told Pirates' official website as he prepares to face his former team.

The former Wits captain insisted that although he has a soft spot for the side that afforded him a big break in the professional ranks, “my job will come first.”

“I lost to Pirates in a cup final while I was still at Wits and that was painful. Now I’m with Pirates, a team that can easily sustain a lot of pressure and perform well in big stages.

"So, if I make the team, I will have to perform.

“The team is chasing silverware and we have been a solid team from the beginning of the season, now we have to deliver not only for the club but for ourselves as players.

“We want to celebrate at the end of the match and if that means we have to go all out, we will do just that, concluded Myeni.

Pirates, who finished fourth on the PSL table, have already lost in three finals this season (CAF Champions League, Telkom Knockout and MTN8).

Kick-off for Saturday's game is scheduled for 15:00.
