Orlando Pirates coach Kosta Papic has issued a warning to Superpsort United ahead of their Castle Premiership clash at the Johannesburg Stadium on Saturday.
Papic vented his anger following United coach Pitso Mosimane's claims that the Buccaneers' unbeaten run in the league "means nothing".
"If someone wants to beat us, they will have to work very, very hard," the Pirates coach said. "I feel sorry for them."
"Everybody becomes nervous whenever they play us," he claimed.
Pirates will be hoping to stretch their unbeaten run to 12 games, although Papic insists that the record will not play too much on their minds.
"We're not talking about the record. It's good for the club, the players and the supporters, but we don't go into matches thinking about a record. We go there wanting to win."
The Soweto giants will also welcome the return of talented midfielder Steve Lekoelea, who returns to the side from suspension, but will be without key trio Gift Leremi, Joseph Makhanya and Edward Malinga.
