City will welcome Pirates to the Cape Town Stadium next week, March 14, for the round of 16 of the Nedbank Cup competition.

Speaking to the media after his side’s 2-0 win over Chippa United last week Friday, McCarthy admitted that he is not too excited to face an on-form Pirates in the competition, adding that he would have preferred to face Steenberg United.

“Not very much excited because the form that Pirates are in, I would have maybe wanted them at a later stage. I wanted to have the proper Ke Yona, yes Steenberg United at Cape Town Stadium, that would have been like such a blessing in disguise,” McCarthy said.

“But, unfortunately, you get Pirates, but I think the motivation factor for the players and obviously we lost against them in the league last time, but did we really lose against them? We got a goal waved away so, yeah, there (are) matters that we need to settle but it is going to be tough as hell because Pirates are coming of age and finding their rhythm and it seems like Micho and Rulani (are) creating a good vibe and atmosphere in the Pirates camp. 

“So, they will be flying high but like I said, home advantage always counts and we know, hopefully, come that time the rain comes and blesses us because I know the Joburg teams love playing in the rain,” he added.

This is not Chippa United. It's Orlando Pirates for sure. What happened to the former won't happen to the latter as they are different teams all together.
