Micho calls on Pirates’ player number-twelve

Orlando Pirates coach Milutin Sredojevic has called on The Ghost to come in numbers as they look to exploit home advantage and get a crucial victory over Horoya this evening.

Pirates will host the Guinean champions in their second Group B CAF Champions League clash at Orlando Stadium on Friday night – kick-off at 18h00.

The Buccaneers come into the tie off a goalless stalemate with Zimbabwe’s FC Platinum, while Horoya would be buoyed by their restriction of defending champions Esperance to a 1-1 draw.

Three points tonight could prove momentous in Pirates’ hopes of advancing through the group and into the quarterfinals come April, as all sides currently sit level on one point apiece.

However, Sredojevic and his charges have since been made privy to the strengths and weaknesses of their opponents and are eagerly looking to hide their own shortfalls while exploiting that of the visitors this evening.

“They have watched us and recognized our weaknesses, but we are looking to hide our weaknesses [in tonight’s game] and express our strengths,” said Micho.

“We have also seen certain weaknesses within them, which is normal because a perfect team does not exist on this planet, but it is not fair to speak to the media about their weaknesses.

“Our players have come from a lesson room where each detail was supposed to be touched, and Horoya are having strengths that we need to close, while certain aspects of weaknesses we need to capitalise on.
