Bucs go into today’s Soweto derby carrying a slender advantage following their 1-0 win over Chiefs in the first leg, however coach Roger de Sa’s team will not sit back on their aggregate lead.

Pirates, who advanced to the semi-finals of the CAF Champions League last weekend, have had a busy schedule of late, both domestically and on the continent, although De Sa says that they have prepared for today’s game.

“They (Chiefs) rested a few of their top players on Saturday and that shows their intent. They are hungry and will come at us to win this game. They will be coming at us because they are coming from behind and we are prepared for that," said the coach.

Having only had one full day to recover ahead of today’s game, following their goalless draw with Al Ahly in the Champions League, De Sa admits that they are at a disadvantage, though they had anticipated it.

“We knew for a while it while be like this and we prepared for the fixture because we knew it for some time. Obvious we are at a disadvantage but we don't think about that but think of the game and to win it,” De Sa concluded.
