Chansa: 'Hilal win good for our morale'
Tuesday April 25 2006
Orlando Pirates' African Champions League win over Al Hila on Saturday has boosted the team's morale in the build-up to their Castle Premiership clash against Bush Bucks on Wednesday evening.
"Our weekend Champions League win against Al Hilal boosted the moral of our players, it also helped us to see that we are definitely on the right track and no one can be in a position to derail what we have achieved to date," Pirates 'keeper Francis Chansa told his club's official website.
"We have reached a great level of consistency and promise our supporters the same performance when we get to East London."
The encounter is a do or die affair for the home side and a defeat will certainly not do their cause to remain in the Castle Premiership any favours.
Pirates beat Bush Bucks 3-1 in the first round and many expect the rampaging Soweto side to leave East London with all three points in the bag.
