Sre­do­je­vic back­ing charges to col­lect points against AmaZulu

Observer on Saturday - - Sport -

- Or­lando Pi­rates coach Mi­lutin Sre­do­je­vic is ex­pect­ing a “proper derby match” against AmaZulu but is con­fi­dent of his side’s ca­pa­bil­i­ties of col­lect­ing the nec­es­sary points.

Pi­rates are set to face an­other Dur­ban side just three days af­ter be­ing held by Golden Ar­rows, when they visit Usuthu at King Zwelithini Sta­dium this evening.

The Buc­ca­neers will be look­ing to bounce back against a mul­ish out­fit led by coach Cavin John­son, and Sre­do­je­vic has taken note of the dan­gers of their sit­u­a­tion re­gard­ing their re­cent points de­duc­tion or­dered by FIFA.

How­ever, the Ser­bian re­jects any pos­si­ble im­pact it may have had on the team’s threat and has thus stressed that his charges will go out fully fo­cused on ob­tain­ing the points.

“We have the high­est de­gree of re­spect for AmaZulu. We re­gret that our dear col­league Cavin and his team are not [im­pacted] be­cause it was an ad­min­is­tra­tive as­pect of be­ing de­ducted the points,” said 'Mi­cho'.

“How­ever, we know that when­ever the so-called ‘big three’, and any other team – even Maritzburg United, come to them it’s not an easy place to play. “But, I have be­lief in the work we do, and I have to­tal trust, con­fi­dence and be­lief in our play­ers be­cause we know where we are go­ing and what kind of chal­lenge we have in front of us.
