Orlando Pirates midfielder Dove Wome has conceded that the pressure is on Amabhakabhaka to win a trophy over the final four months of the current campaign to make up for the disappointments experienced under coach Muhsin Ertugral and coach Augusto Palacios.
Pirates were last night pitted against Free State Stars in the Last 16 of the Nedbank Cup.
“We will be playing both games (against Free State Stars) away from home which will not be easy so we need to be prepared,” Wome told Pirates’ official website.
“Free State Stars are a very good side especially when it comes to cup matches as they have shown recently when they knocked out Kaizer Chiefs in the Telkom Knockout. Playing them back-to-back offers a different challenge… it’s easy for a team to fall into the trap by focusing on one competition over the other but not us. We will take it one game at a time and hopefully we can be successful in both.
“This is our last chance to win silverware for our supporters so we will be taking it very seriously. We want to get back to playing continental football and this is one competition which gives us an opportunity to do so.”
