Supersport United coach Pitso Mosimane is desperate for his charges to get a result in Seychelles so as not to put too much pressure on themselves.
The SAA Supa 8 champions face Red Star in a Confederations Cup group stage on Saturday, hoping to do all the hard work in the first-leg.
Mosimane knows away ties in African competition are hard work at the best of times, but believes Matsatsantsa have what it takes to get a positive result.
"There are no excuses, we desperately need results," he told the club's official website. "We must score goals to make things difficult for the opposition, and easier for us in the second leg at home.
"It is difficult to beat most of the teams in Africa when you play them away. I actually don't want us to concede because that would put a lot of pressure to our players. We know what to do in whatever we come across."
United have been in a rich vein of form in recent weeks, going unbeaten in their last 10 matches to push them up to fifth in the Premiers Soccer League table.
