Orlando Pirates head coach, Milutin Sredojevic, has emphasised the task of fighting for three points to his players.
The Serbian coach will lead Bucs to Bidvest Stadium for the match against Bidvest Wits on Saturday. The Buccaneers aim to keep up with the pacesetters at the top of the Absa Premiership log.
Wits will aim to cause an upset by beating Pirates for the first win of the season for Gavin Hunt and his side. Sredojevic says his side will not focus much on what happens at Wits, but on the task at hand for the Soweto giants. “Look, I have been on a consistent basis trying to remind my players of the task that lays ahead of us. We are professionals and in order to succeed as a professional, you need to approach each match and each task in a manner befitting of the word. “We are well aware of the task that lies ahead of us. We are not going to focus too much on what has been happening to our opponents prior to this game because what matters to Orlando Pirates and the extended family, is what we do on Saturday. Form counts for nothing on match day, which is why we will not be underestimating our opposition. We will give them the respect they deserve and fight for the points on offer on the day,” Micho told Pirates’ official website.
