Sredojevic backing charges to collect points against AmaZulu
- 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.
