Bucs warned on Confed Cup minnows

CAF Confederation Cup

Swazi side Royal Leopards have sent a stern warning to Orlando Pirates ahead of their CAF Confederations Cup match on Sunday.

Both Leopards and Pirates are coming off of defeats in their previous group encounter over the weekend.

Ingwe Mabalabala has chosen Mbombela stadium in Nelspruit as their home venue after Mavuso Stadium in eSwatini failed to meet the CAF requirements.

Leopards CEO Frank Hurube has now sent a stern warning to their much-favoured opponents.

"Uyayati ingoti yenyoka lenyatselekile [you know the danger of a wounded snake].

"This is what Orlando Pirates will see on Sunday. We wanted to play the match during daylight so that they can feel the heat," Hurube tells KickOff.

"They are lucky that we are playing at 18:00.

"We were unlucky with the score against JS Saoura and we were beaten through our own mistakes.

"We are ready to dust ourselves and prepare for our next match and I feel we will definitely beat Pirates on Sunday."

Leopards are currently second in their domestic league standings in eSwatini as they look to secure continental glory.
