Vermezovic: We Have To Win Games

Orlando Pirates coach, Vladimir Vermezovic, says his charges will have to forget about their loss against SuperSport United on the weekend, and focus on winning Saturday’s Nedbank Cup clash against Mamelodi Sundowns.

The Buccaneers will face the Brazilians in the quarterfinals of the Nedbank Cup in Pretoria on Saturday night.

“It has been a difficult season for the team. The guys are trying but it is tough. We come from a few losses which affected the morale (of the team) at the moment, but we have to win games,” Vermezovic told the official Pirates website.

“The Nedbank Cup is something we have to go all out and try to win. We also have not had enough time to prepare because we had to catch up, but we will see. Now we will have a full week of preparation and I’m sure we will have a good game against Sundowns,” added the Serbian coach.

Meanwhile, Pirates captain, Lucky Lekgwathi, is expecting a tough clash against Sundowns.

“We have to move on and try our best to beat Sundowns. It is not going to be easy, but we know we will go there with our spirits high because we beat them in their backyard in the league. The only problem is that we are not converting our chances. But I believe with the supporters fully behind us, we will do well against Sundowns,” commented Lekgwathi.

The clash will take place at Loftus Stadium on Saturday at 20h15.
