Orlando Pirates Roger de Sa CAF Champions League

Posted: 19 September 2013 Time: 12:04

Orlando Pirates coach Roger de Sa says the team will do everything in its power to get the result against Al Ahly – starting with intensive video analysis today.

The Mighty Buccaneers, who are fresh from a 1-0 win over Polokwane City last night, will top the group if they get a win over the Egyptians and, most importantly, progress to the CAF Champions League semi-finals.

Bucs take on Al Ahly on Sunday at Orlando Stadium.

‘RDS’ says the whole team will be analysing Al Ahly today.

“We will do a video session today. We will be watching Al Ahly straight away and obviously the technical team has been watching their videos, but we are showing the players for the first time today. We will take it from there,” he says.

Since the match on Sunday is at 3:30pm, De Sa further says the team will train a lot in the afternoon in the coming days.

On the injury front, the 48-year-old says, “Andile Jali’s shoulder is a bit of a worry” after he got injured during the match against City, but new information coming from the club indicates the midfielder will be good to go on Sunday.

“We found that there is no dislocation to his shoulder which is good for us,” the club’s physiotherapist Shiraaz Josephs confirms.

“We will have him under treatment today and if the pain does not subside, then we will send him for an X-ray on Friday just for us to see if there is more than what we could find when we observed him yesterday.”
