The former Platinum Stars and AmaZulu assistant coach has won his first two games in the league and Nedbank Cup.

"I feel privileged for the opportunity but for any coach it's come for nothing if there are no results," said Clark, whose side lost 3-1 to Pirates in the first round in Soweto last year.

"Besides the appointment, my role and character doesn't change. We just have to keep working hard and make sure that we help the team get into a better position on the log."

Pirates are yet to lose in the league this year and it remains to be seen if Lidoda Duvha will put an end to end their winning ways.

"They are a good team. They are on form. They are the biggest club. I believe it will be a great occasion and I'm confident that our supporters will pack the stadium.

"We are playing at Thohoyandou and we want to make the venue our fortress."
