“To play in an iconic stadium like this, it is a dream come true for many players, you can imagine those players been told two seasons back – would you like to play at Cape Town Stadium against Orlando Pirates, it is a dream come true and significant for them as well as the club,” Barker told the media ahead of the game.

“To be competitive and win matches against big teams which I do firmly believe that and I am quite confident to get a positive result from this match. 

“Hopefully the rain comes it will feel like home, we have to travel an hour and they travel for minutes (from their hotel). They will probably have more support than us at the Stadium but you get used to it when you play a team like Chiefs or Pirates but we have to use it to our advantage.,” Barker added.
