Posted: 26 February 2015 Time: 13:11

Orlando Pirates defender Ayanda Gcaba is confident his side can get the better of SuperSport United in the Nedbank Cup last 16.

The Buccaneers were drawn against Matsatsantsa in the next round of the national cup competition, and Gcaba insists the Sea Robbers can prevail.

Gcaba has played down the fear factor or United's in-form strikers Jeremy Brockie and Kingston Nkhatha and believes his side are well equipped to deal with them.

"We know they have good strikers but we also have good defenders. I've seen Brockie a couple of times. He is a good striker," says Gcaba.

"I won't say the Brockie and Nkhatha combination is the most lethal in the PSL because they also have weaknesses.

"We know that SuperSport United will be tough. We have to be at our best against them.

"Pressure is always there, even if you are defending champions. We don't want to say we will win the Nedbank Cup. We have to take it game by game."
