Williams: SuperSport must respect Pirates

Premiership

SuperSport United captain Ronwen Williams has warned his side against underestimating Orlando Pirates ahead of Wednesday's DStv Premiership clash at Orlando Stadium.

SuperSport have switched their focus to the league after qualifying for the Nedbank Cup quarter-finals following their 1-0 victory against Platinum City Rovers in the North West on Saturday.

"It's never easy playing Pirates in their own backyard. It's going to be a tough one and they've been part of many competitions so we need to use that to our advantage.

"With the extra rest that we had, we need to use it to our advantage," Williams said.

"It's going to be tough obviously as they want to climb the ladder and so do we. We must not give any respect to them.

"We should go out there and try to dominate the game, try and put them under pressure from the word go, believe in ourselves and the structure and obviously the gameplan.

"We have prepared well, we had a chance to watch their last game, so we know what they are about, we just need to go there and apply ourselves."

Kick-off is at 19:30.
