Orlando Pirates coach Milutin Sredojevic insists that his players are not feeling any pressure ahead of their Absa Premiership clash again the Black Leopards.
The Buccaneers are set to welcome Lidoda Duvha to the Orlando Stadium on Wednesday.
Following their 1-0 victory over fellow title-challengers Bidvest Wits, Sredojevic says that his technical team are taking all the pressure off of his players as they look to improve their performance against Leopards.
‘I will disagree that players are feeling the pressure, because we are there to stand for them and taking all the pressure on us,’ Sredojevic told the media.
‘We let the players express themselves and there is still, football-wise, room for improvement and development, and we want to first recover from this match.’
Pirates will be boosted by the return of star Thembinkosi Lorch, who is coming back into the squad after serving a one-match suspension.
‘We’ll welcome (Thembinkosi) Lorch back from suspension and we expect to come fully focused and concentrated in Wednesday’s game, where I want to invite our supporters to come and support us because their presence is a special driving force and helps us to give our best,’ he concluded.
Orlando Pirates against Black Leopards kicks off at 7:30pm.
